NYC People’s Hearing on the Repeal of the Clean Power Plan

The New York State Office of the Attorney General and the New York City Office of the Mayor, in partnership with NYC Councilmember Costa Constantinides, Environmental Protection Committee Chair, and The New School, present the New York City People’s Hearing on the Repeal of the Clean Power Plan. Co-sponsors include the Earth Institute, Columbia University; the New York League of Conservation Voters; Hudson Riverkeeper; Center for New York City Neighborhoods; and Environmental Advocates of New York.

The Trump administration will not be holding hearings in New York on the proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan -the first-ever nationwide limits on greenhouse gas emissions from existing fossil-fuel power plants. The “People’s Hearing” will ensure New Yorkers’ voices are heard on this important measure.
