SUMMARY
FAILED Leadership
Unlike years past when Governor Cuomo, Dean Skelos, and Shelly Silver exchanged high fives in the red room, this year’s silence spoke volumes about the quality of the 2013 session. With the advent of “coalition” government in the Senate, people who care about the environment entered the year with high hopes for a productive legislative session. We believed that environmental and public health protections stood a better chance of passage with Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) Senator Jeff Klein leading a so-called group of “moderate” Democrats alongside Republican Senator Dean Skelos’ conference, which has historically been difficult to move on issues ranging from climate change to protecting children from toxic chemicals. They promised to end the Senate’s dysfunction, and we had every reason to believe them. How wrong we were. Instead, for the second year in a row, the Senate did not deliver a single Super Bill to Governor Andrew Cuomo for his signature. On issue after issue, Senators Skelos and Klein refused to allow simple votes on legislation and stymied proposals advanced by anyone other than members of the majority coalition. Oftentimes, it appeared they were not only at political war with the mainline Democratic Conference, but each other. Worse, even good bills sponsored by members of the ruling Independent Democratic and Republican conferences died in Senator Mark Grisanti’s Environmental Conservation Committee – the graveyard of good environmental and public health legislation.

The GREEN Gulf

Once again the Assembly worked hard to move good policy – with Assemblyman Bob Sweeney putting our environment and health ahead of the wall of corporate money that consistently shuts down good legislation in the Senate. In all, the Assembly passed 26 good bills to just 11 passed by the Senate. As importantly, Speaker Sheldon Silver led the Assembly to shut down every bad bill passed by the Senate, including legislation to invalidate critical regulations that provide basic health, safety, and environmental protections. Three of these bills earned 3-smokestacks under Environmental Advocates’ rating system because their environmental impact would have been so severe; this was the highest number of 3-smokestack bills passed by the Senate in five years. While we applaud the Assembly for continuing to lead on environmental issues, they must also step up their efforts to ensure their initiatives make it through both houses and are signed into law by the Governor.

Senate GRAVEYARD

We saw two forms of gridlock during the session: failure to lead and failure to negotiate. Failed leadership was seen in two bills that died in the Senate despite having more cosponsors than were needed for passage. Senator Philip Boyle worked tirelessly on behalf of the Child Safe Products Act garnering co-sponsorship from an incredible 37 senators, including three members of the IDC and seven republicans. Legislation requires just 32 votes to pass. The bill went nowhere. Unrelenting public pressure brought 34 cosponsors, including the IDC and several Republicans, onto a bill that would close a gaping loophole in existing regulations and require drilling companies to properly dispose of their hazardous waste. The bill went nowhere.

A failure to compromise sunk Governor Cuomo’s plan to make our state a leader in the development of clean, renewable energy – and in the process create thousands of jobs and lessen climate-altering emissions – by placing the NY-Sun Initiative in statute for 10 years. Both houses passed versions of the bill, but they were unable to reconcile their differences, so when the final gavel fell New Yorkers were left with nothing. It is now on Governor Cuomo’s shoulders to take action.

Real World CONSEQUENCES

Despite promises of reform, the Senate failed to pass any campaign finance plan that would finally break the legislative logjam that stalls common-sense solutions to real world problems. It seems to have been lost on Senators Skelos and Klein that New York’s environmental dangers are real. When climate change delivers a steady rain of devastating and unpredictable storms, there are consequences. When manufacturers are allowed to load up children’s products with deadly chemicals, there are consequences. And when a legislative body fails to deliver on any of its promises, there will be consequences.

Two Ends of the SPECTRUM
In 2013, state legislators seemed more interested in gamesmanship and political power plays than working together to get anything accomplished – an extremely disappointing turn of events following the devastating toll that Superstorm Sandy and other severe weather events had on many communities statewide. As a result, EPL/Environmental Advocates is unable to provide anyone with the distinction of 2013 Legislator of the Year. This year’s legislative session brought no substantive action on issues of climate change, fracking, or children’s health. For the second year in a row, none of the environmental community’s Super Bills were sent to the Governor. And the one area of potential achievement – the solar energy development – failed due an impasse between the Senate and Assembly leaving the two houses unable to sort out nominal disagreements.

Honorable Mention: ROBERT K. SWEENEY
In a sea of disappointment, one legislator in particular stood out for his ongoing commitment to our environment. As Chair of the Environmental Conservation Committee, Assemblymember Sweeney (D–Lindenhurst) continued to cement his role as a champion for New York’s air, land, and water. He was the lead sponsor on three of the four environmental community’s 2013 Super Bills, and was instrumental in passing them through his Chamber. The Assemblyman also shepherded a number of other environmentally beneficial bills to the floor for a vote including bills to keep mercury out of landfills and a bill to include future climate risks in municipal planning efforts.

OIL SLICK AWARDEE: Jeffrey Klein

When Senator Klein (D-Bronx) arranged his ascension to his Chamber’s co-presidency, he promised to end the dysfunction that has consumed the Senate for years. Instead, he: • prevented common-sense legislation from making its way through the legislative process; • refused to use his leadership position to prevent the roll back of hard-fought environmental protections from coming to the floor; • voted for several bad bills which could kill protections that Senator Klein and his colleagues voted in favor of in previous years. We had high hopes going in to 2013 that bipartisan leadership would finally break the legislative logjam that has stalled so many initiatives in the past. Unfortunately, the 2013 legislative session ended with one of the most dismal environmental records in history. Senator Klein recieves the 2013 Oil Slick Award due to his lack of commitment to public health and environmental protection. The Senator seems more interested in power and press releases, than sound public policy. We hope that in 2014 he will act as the leader he promised to be.

Bill Summaries
Legislation is scored on a spectrum between three trees (significant environmental benefits) to three smokestacks (significant environmental harm). Additionally, select legislation with significant benefits are identified by The Green Panel, the state’s environmental community, as Super Bills. SUPER BILLS are legislative priorities chosen by the Green Panel, which includes representatives from New York State’s leading environmental groups. Bills with 3 trees will bring major benefits to New York’s environment. Bills with 2 trees will bring substantial benefits to New York’s environment. Bills with 1 tree will benefit New York’s environment. Bills with 1 smokestack will be detrimental to New York’s environment. Bills with 2 smokestacks will be seriously detrimental to New York’s environment. Bills with 3 smokestacks would likely result in major or lasing harm to some aspect of New York’s environment.

How scores are calculated
To calculate legislators’ scores, EPL/Environmental Advocates uses ratings developed by our sister organization, Environmental Advocates of New York. Legislators earn between 1 and 3 points respectively for votes in support of bills rated by Environmental Advocates of New York as 1, 2, or 3 “tree” bills. Treerated bills are those that will benefit the environment. Legislators earn between 1 and 3 points respectively for votes against bills that are given a rating of 1, 2, or 3 “smokestacks.” Smokestack-rated bills are those that will harm the environment. Legislators earn points for supporting Super Bills — the environmental community’s top legislative priorities — as follows:

Co-sponsoring: Lawmakers receive half-credit (1.5 points of a 3-tree bill) for Super Bills they sponsor or co-sponsor. However, if a Super Bill is voted on, the vote is counted in the score, and credit is not given for co-sponsorship. Members who request to be added as co-sponsors also receive co-sponsorship credit. Becoming law: If a Super Bill is passed by both houses and signed into law, all legislators who voted for it receive 3 points plus 2 bonus points. Incompletes: Legislators who miss more than 20 percent of votes receive a score of incomplete (INC).

Find out who represents you. Visit www.assembly.state.ny.us and www.nysenate.gov or call the New York State Assembly at (518) 455-4100 and the New York State Senate at (518) 455-2800. Vote at the local, state, & federal levels. Your vote is critical when it comes to whether or not New York State protects the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the health of our families. Contact your lawmakers. The New York State Legislature is in regular session every year from January to June. While they are scheduled to meet for six months, in recent years budget negotiations have led to lengthier sessions and “special sessions.” Write to your legislators at New York State Assembly, Albany, NY 12248 or New York State Senate, Albany, NY 12247. Hold legislators accountable. If they voted to weaken New York’s environmental safeguards, send lawmakers a note expressing your disapproval. If your legislators are working to protect New York’s environment, write to thank them. Support our work. Visit www.eplscorecard.org to support New York’s first environmental advocacy group working in the State Capitol.
