Ads in New York Show State Animals Trying to Resign
March 10, 2010
The ad features the state’s “official” animals — bluebird, snapping turtle, beaver and brook trout — submitting their resignations.
It’s sponsored by a broad coalition of groups including the Adirondack Council, Audubon New York, Environmental Advocates, Scenic Hudson and others.
The Environmental Protection Fund was established in 1993 to provide a reliable source of money for projects such as landfill closure, recycling facilities, and open space protection.
Citing an $8 billion looming budget deficit, Governor Paterson proposes cutting the Environmental Protection fund by about one-third to $143 million.
