Oct 27,28, 31 and Nov 1
has scheduled four meetings starting October 27th around
the state (Albany Oct. 27th, Buffalo Oct. 28th , Long Island City Oct. 31st and Stony Brook Nov. 1st) to

YOU must take action NOW!
NCA is opposed to a perc phase
out, a phase out of petroleum transfer operations and the extent of proposed
regulations for alternative solvent users.
We need your help to make sure your
State Legislators and the Governor KNOW that you are opposed to a
perc phase out and you oppose the over regulation of dry cleaners using alternative solvents.
Click here for all NCA's talking
points supporting our position, but more importantly, click
here to connect to a hyper link that
will allow you to automatically send an email to your State Senator,
Assemblyperson and Governor's offices expressing your opposition. (your representatives will be automatically identified for you when you enter your zip code. At that point you will also see the entire contents of the letter.)
stop with an email, though. Pick up the phone or drop by your local
legislators' (the name of your Senator and Assemblyperson will appear on the right side of the screen when you send the email) office and voice your
concern about changes to existing regulations, which are aggressively
protective of the environment and burdensome to small businesses.
If you have any questions, please call
us 212.967.3002. NCA will be at ALL meetings and is actively
involved in this effort. We have already met with and/or spoken to
some elected officials, but your efforts on the local level are
critical to our success or failure in this endeavor.
