From the Morning Memo:

A push by good-government advocates and environmental groups to add an Environmental Bill of Rights to the state constitution continues this week with the release of a pair of videos highlighting the issue.

The videos highlight Albany residents — a 10-year-old named Lawrence and A Village Inc. Director Willie White — that point to the issue of the oil trains passing through the city’s South end as well as diesel truck emissions.

The videos are being released Monday by the Environmental Advocates of New York and EffectiveNY, the group founded by businessman and political activist Bill Samuels.

“The fact that less than a mile and a half away from the Governor’s Mansion in Albany, 200 of New York’s children can be allowed to live in the toxic conditions so vividly illustrated in these videos is unconscionable,” Samuels said in a statement.

“Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature must take immediate action to pass a Constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to fresh air and clean drinking water so the residents of Ezra Prentice Homes and all New Yorkers can finally get the environmental justice they deserve.”
