February 1, 2019
KINGSTON, NY – Today, U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) announced his key priorities for creating new green jobs and addressing climate change.
In a piece published today, Delgado writes, “It is critical that our nation enacts policies that lower carbon emissions and increase investment in renewable energy sources. And equally important, these policies must do right by our communities here in Upstate New York.”
Focusing on the potential for economic growth, Delgado emphasized the importance of creating new green jobs in Upstate New York and discussed legislation he is preparing to introduce that would require the Department of Energy to conduct a study identifying demand for green jobs and establish a pilot program to award grants to community colleges and small businesses to provide job training accordingly.
