Energy and Environment

I will fight to protect our environment, sustain our natural resources, and keep our communities safe for generations to come. Establishing more affordable, reliable and sustainable energy solutions will create new jobs and industry in the Hudson Valley.

Over the last few years, New York families have faced dramatically rising gas prices. I am committed to supporting efforts to promote energy independence in order to help lower the price at the pump.  A comprehensive energy plan must include both short-term and long-term energy solutions in order to reduce our reliance on foreign resources.  We can use a mix of traditional fossil fuel sources while expanding domestic resources and investing in innovative renewable technologies that will allow us to have more secure, affordable energy. 

For more information concerning my work and views on Energy and Environmental issues, please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.

Press Release
Representative Sean Patrick Maloney today advocated for inclusion of his legislation, the National Dam Safety Act, into the Water Resources Development Act . Last week, Maloney introduced legislation to give communities the support they need to ensure dams have the highest safety standards. With thousands of dams across the country posing a serious risk to communities and families, The Dam Safety Act of 2013 addresses the growing safety concerns caused by our nation’s aging dam infrastructure by reauthorizing the National Dam Safety Program (NDSP) which failed to be reauthorized last Congress.
