ACTION ALERT PLEASE CALL GOVERNOR CUOMO'S OFFICE
Dear Advocate for the Environment,
This is it! The Pine Barrens Expansion Act, which would add more than 1000 acres to the Core Preservation area of the Pine Barrens, has arrived on Governor Cuomo's desk. Please call him immediately, urging him to sign this important legislation. Our proposal provides for both preservation of Pine Barrens AND re-location of solar, so Long Island gets the benefit of both. The decision is at hand. Please lend your support for approval of Pine Barrens expansion. A script and contact information is included below for your convenience - feel free to edit as you see fit.

Hi, I'm ________NAME____________ from _____TOWN____________. I am calling in support of bill numbers A7722-B and S6157-B, to add environmentally-sensitive land in Shoreham and Mastic to the Core Preservation Area of the Long Island Pine Barrens.
We should not be cutting down woods for solar energy. The current plan provides for both preservation of Pine Barrens AND re-location of solar, so Long Island gets the benefit of both. Please sign this important piece of legislation into law. Thank you.
