Petition Circulating To Stop Firewood Burn Ban In New York
There have been a few conservation and outdoors organizations throughout New York State that have put together petitions that would voice the concerns from New York State residents. Backed by New York State Senator, Patty Ritchie, the petitions are getting some strength.
In a post on the the Senator's website, it is clear that the bill, if passed, would have a clear financial impact on many who heat with wood in New York State.
In recent weeks, I have heard from countless constituents who are opposed to the Climate Action Council’s potential ban on wood burning stoves. New York families are already paying the highest energy costs in the nation—and taking away this affordable heating source could make living here even more unaffordable.
