New York’s 2013-2014 budget includes increased funding to the Environmental Protection Fund. Thanks to Governor Cuomo, the State Legislature, and the advocacy efforts of grassroots organizations like NYPIRG, the EPF will gain up to $19 million in additional funds. Combined with the funding the EPF already had, the EPF will now be receiving $153 million in 2013-2014 budget.
