Contributing sentiments towards policy:

59% : In the end, the Assembly couldn't bring the HEAT Act, the packaging or bottle bills to the floor even after the session was lengthened by a full day.
50% : The lack of action means the state continues to be at risk of missing its goals under the 2019 Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act to create carbon-free electricity by 2040.
45% : That bill would require fossil fuel producers to take over much of the cost to make communities more resilient to flooding and severe storms and to pay for storm damage.
44% : Supporters said the three major environmental measures that failed would have made transformative changes for generations to come while making fossil fuel producers pay to combat climate change.
31% : Legislators blamed Hochul for dropping her congestion pricing delay in the last week of session, the Senate blamed the Assembly for not acting on the measures weeks ago, and many legislators blamed advocacy groups for failing to rally public support beyond "the true believers" to counter intensive lobbying by industries.
