Senator O'Mara's weekly column 'From the Capitol' ~ for the week of August 8, 2016 ~ 'Taking responsibility in a throw-away society'

Another nod to this year’s action to strengthen and fully fund the EPF which, as I’ve stressed repeatedly in my role as chairman of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee, represents one of the strongest actions we've ever taken in New York government to benefit local economies, environments and taxpayers. Here's another example. The recycling of E-waste has become extremely burdensome and costly for local governments and property taxpayers.

Senator O'Mara offers his weekly perspective on many of the key challenges and issues facing the Legislature, as well as on legislative actions, local initiatives, state programs and policies, and more. Stop back every Monday for Senator O'Mara's latest column "From the Capitol..."

This week, "Taking responsibility in a throw-away society"
