On Tuesday last week, Governor Paterson signed the Green Jobs/ Green New York
Bill into law. We touched on the bill in an earlier post
The bill will invest millions in weatherization and towards the improved energy efficiency of commercial and residential buildings, and to train New Yorkers to work in this field. A new state run site – www.greencareersny.com
– aims to link in individuals, businesses and workforce professionals to the State’s local training programs and green job opportunities. You can read the Governor’s press release
about the signing for more information.
We’ll continue to watch this program develop.
