This year, after support from our organization and others, the New York State Senate and Assembly approved a bill called the Community Risk Reduction and Resilience Act that requires the consideration of sea level rise, storm surge, and flooding in certain state funding and permitting programs. Now that the bill has been passed by the Senate and Assembly, we need Governor Cuomo to sign it into law.
