Petition to enact outdoor lighting controls in NYS

March 2013

To NY State Residents:

Currently pending in the NY State Legislature is a “light pollution” bill which would regulate state installed outdoor lighting.

Even if your community has enacted guidelines for outdoor lighting, state installations can be exempt (as are schools) from local zoning regulations.

Please help enact this legislation which is currently “bi-partisan,” sponsored by Assemblywoman Rosenthal (D) and Senator Marcellino (R).

This year we have an opportunity to enact an outdoor lighting act that will help reduce light pollution. Please sign this petition:
