Governor cuomo climate action
We need legislation to push NYS to reduce carbon emissions and protect communities that are already suffering because of climate change. Support the CCPA & CCIA! The Climate and Community Protection Act (CCPA) would support the Governor’s green jobs initiative and move New York toward 100% renewables by 2050.The Climate and Community Investment Act (CCIA) would impose a tax on corporate polluters.This tax would generate more than $7 billion a year for New York to invest in renewable energy and resiliency. I ask that the Governor publicly support both of these bills and push the Senate to hold a vote on both pieces of legislation before the end of the 2018 session. Thank you!
The Senate tax proposal was ALREADY a giveaway for the wealthy at the expense of working Americans. As if that weren’t bad enough, the Senate GOP has added a provision that would REPEAL the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate! This would have catastrophic consequences for insurance markets and for the millions of Americans who depend on the ACA for their healthcare.
I’m writing to the the Senator to vote against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This bill is a scam to give the wealthy massive tax cuts at the expense of tens of thousands of people in our state. Corporations are making record profits, trickle-down economics has a proven failure record, and the American people have made clear time and again that we do NOT want to see the ACA sabotaged. Will the Senator commit to voting no on this bill AND withholding consent on votes or filibustering in the Senate, so that we have time to mobilize against this? Thank you!
I urge you to stop the FCC's plan to end net neutrality *before* the FCC's December 14th vote.
I don't want ISPs to have the power to block websites, slow them down, give some sites an advantage over others, split the Internet into "fast lanes" for companies that pay and "slow lanes" for the rest, or force me to buy special "tiers" to access the sites and services I choose. But that's exactly what the FCC plan would do. Please read it:
Blocking & throttling by ISPs is a serious problem. Comcast has throttled Netflix, AT&T blocked FaceTime, Time Warner Cable throttled the popular game League of Legends, and Verizon admitted it will introduce fast lanes for sites that pay-and slow lanes for everyone else-if the FCC lifts the rules. This hurts consumers and businesses large and small.
If some companies can pay ISPs to have their content load faster, startups and small businesses that can't pay those fees won't be able to compete. This will kill the open marketplace that has enabled millions of small businesses and created America’s 5 most valuable companies. Without strong net neutrality protections, Internet providers will effectively be able to impose a tax on every sector of the American economy.
Moreover, under Chairman Pai's plan, ISPs will be able to make it more difficult to access political speech that they don't like. They'll be able to charge fees for website delivery that would make it harder for blogs, nonprofits, artists, and others who can't pay up to have their voices heard.
If the FCC passes their current order, every Internet user and business in this country will be unprotected from abuse by Internet providers, and the consequences will be dire. Please publicly support net neutrality protections by denouncing the FCC's current plan. Do whatever you can to stop Chairman Pai, to ensure that businesses and Internet users remain protected.
