NY State passes new law: GOVERNOR CUOMO SIGNS COMMUNITY RISK AND RESILIENCY ACT
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed into law the Community Risk and Resiliency Act to strengthen New York State’s preparedness for the effects of climate change and help protect communities against severe weather and sea level rise. The Community Risk and Resiliency Act advances a number of important recommendations of the NYS 2100 Commission, which the Governor convened after Superstorm Sandy to develop more resilient infrastructure systems across the state.

I do not know how significant this legislation is likely to be. Nor do I know if any other states have similar laws. Be glad to hear from readers on these matters.
