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.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Lagrangeville, NY – In celebration of Earth Day, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced legislation at Arlington High School to provide funding to schools to encourage green development of their aging infrastructure. The School Modernization And Revitalization Through (SMART) Jobs Act would authorize funding for the development of green schools, which would encourage energy efficiency and the use of renewables, and create numerous high-skilled jobs in the clean energy industry.
Newburgh, NY – After the discovery of a hidden sinkhole beneath Water Street, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) today called on Congress to immediately reauthorize the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Congress has not reauthorized funding for FEMA since 2011, thereby holding up the agency from accepting new applications for pre-disaster mitigation for emergencies like the sinkhole in Newburgh.
