New York – The New York League of Conservation Voters, which works to make environmental sustainability a top policy priority in New York State, has named Assemblywoman Nily Rozic to a list of the state’s most promising new environmental leaders.

Assemblywoman Rozic represents the 25th District in northeast Queens, which includes Flushing, Queensboro Hill, Hillcrest, Fresh Meadows, Oakland Gardens, Bayside and Douglaston.

NYLCV’s New Generation 2013 list encompasses 13 lawmakers who were recently elected to the New York Legislature. Working in conjunction with the leadership of both houses and political parties, these up-and-coming leaders promise to be a driving force for clean air, safe drinking water, renewable energy and community resilience this year.

“From climate change to clean energy, New York faces many complex environmental challenges in 2013,” said NYLCV President Marcia Bystryn. “Fortunately, there is a new generation of environmental leadership in the New York State Senate and Assembly that is committed to addressing these challenges head-on. Because of her impressive track record and plan for a more sustainable future, we are proud to count Assemblywoman Nily Rozic among our New Generation 2013.”

In response to the news, Assemblywoman Rozic said: “I am honored to have been named as a promising new environmental leader by the New York League of Conversation Voters. NYLCV is a leader in the fight for a green and healthy New York State and I am proud to be working with them to better our quality of life in Queens. I will continue to advocate for cleaner, greener and sustainable approaches to business, energy production, and transit.”

NYLCV's New Generation 2013 list examines each of the 13 lawmakers' biographies, their achievements, their records and their environmental philosophies. Along with this information, NYLCV has posted the lawmakers ' environmental questionnaires that they completed last year. The questionnaires provide detailed insights on specific policies, including each lawmaker’s commitment to clean energy, the Environmental Protection Fund and public health.
