Gianaris Receives Perfect Score from Environmental Advocates Action

NEW YORK – Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris was recognized by the Environmental Advocates Action with a perfect score on their annual report card. As Deputy Leader, Senator Gianaris has fought to enact nation-leading environmental legislation in New York.

“Protecting our environment is crucial to ensure a livable planet for future generations,” said Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris. “I am pleased to be recognized by Environmental Advocates Action for my achievements during the 2020 legislative session.”

“When the environment needs protecting, Senator Gianaris is always there. He shows up and does the work—that is clearly reflected in his perfect score. We are grateful for his continued efforts to make New York a national environmental leader,” said Peter Iwanowicz, Executive Director of Environmental Advocates Action.

Senator Gianaris has been an environmental champion throughout his public service. He sponsors legislation to mandate testing of lead in school and park water supplies and supports bills to improve water, air, and soil quality for all New Yorkers. With Senator Gianaris serving as Deputy Majority Leader, the Senate enacted the CLCPA, a historic law to prevent further climate change. The CLCPA reduces statewide greenhouse gas emissions, improves resiliency efforts, ensures local job creation through energy transition, and promotes environmental justice by controlling the regressive impacts of climate change mitigation.
