Joe Addabbo has become a leader in the Senate on efforts to protect our environment and boost the burgeoning green energy industry.
Joe led the effort to enact a moratorium on hydro-fracking for natural gas, a controversial procedure that could harm the city's water supply. Joe has supported efforts to cut down on greenhouse gasses, and to reduce the amount of sulfur used in heating oil -- a leading cause of childhood asthma.
And Joe Addabbo has worked hard to enact job creating energy legislation, including the Green Jobs/Green New York law and the Energize New York program.
