With only nine people confirmed statewide, this committee will report directly to Commissioner Seggos and also interface with the NYS Department of Labor, Department of Health, Energy Research and Development Authority, and Department of Environmental Conservation. The charge of this committee is to lead initiatives that address and support communities of color as the state addresses issues pertaining to environmental racism, clean air, clean water, access to the outdoors, and toward the implementation of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.
