The New York Vapor Intrusion Alliance represents a coalition of individual community action groups from around the state dealing with vapor intrusion issues by working with the NYS Legislature to protect public health.
Our Alliance, NY-VIA, would like to thank the entire Assembly and Senate for passing the Tenant Notification Bill (number A.10952-B/S.8634) through both houses.
Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo and Senator Libous are to be congratulated for crafting this legislation with staff from the DEC and for persevering to see this bill to fruition.
We are very pleased that our state representatives in the Legislature are acting on behalf of the health of their constituents of all ages from children to the elderly.
NY-VIA urges Governor Paterson to sign this bill into law to close gaps in current law so that renters across our fair state who deserve full disclosures will be made aware if the air they are breathing is contaminated by way of vapor intrusion.
As founding members of the NY Vapor Intrusion Alliance, the Concerned Citizens of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Community, Inc., are reaching out to our friends and neighbors to contact Governor Paterson at; 518-474-8390 or through the NY State website at; http://www.state.ny.us/governor/contact/index.html, to urge him to finalize this groundbreaking legislation into law.
