Climate change, SUNY enrollment also top of Hochul’s agenda
The governor announced investments in renewable energy, to work towards her goal announced back in September of cutting 80% of New York City’s power plant emissions by the year 2030.
"Too much time has already been lost in the fight against climate change, and these events are no longer rare. The next one is coming. Look no further than upstate counties, constantly battered by so-called ‘500 year flooding,’" said Hochul.
The governor also talked about the state’s university system. She says she wants to revitalize it by boosting enrollment.
For SUNY Albany, that means transforming it into a research and teaching university, with a goal of achieving $500 million in annual research funding.
