“Today’s announcement by Governor Kathy Hochul to advance clean air transportation projects in the Bronx that would reduce heavy traffic congestion and improve public health, is a game-changer for the thousands of residents who have for years experienced poor health outcomes because of air pollution and environmental neglect. We are grateful to have a partner in Albany in Governor Kathy Hochul who understands these disparities and is working tirelessly with us to ease car congestion, improve safety on our major throughways, and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions that have disproportionately impacted communities of color. Climate change is an issue that requires leadership from all levels of government and today`s announcement is a step in the right direction in the fight for environmental justice and equity.”
