Senator Krueger Holds Roundtable on Including Older Women’s Issues in the Feminist Agenda

New York — On Friday, January 31st, State Senator Liz Krueger and The New York Women’s Foundation held a roundtable discussion titled “Including Older Women’s Issues in the Feminist Agenda.” The roundtable will brought together thought leaders in key policy areas to develop a women’s agenda that includes issues relevant across the lifespan.

Video of the event is available by clicking here.

Today, nearly one in five New Yorkers is 60 or above, a larger proportion of the population than ever before. Older women face significantly more poverty than men do; nearly two out of three poor older adults are women. Women also face more discrimination in the workplace, higher rates of bankruptcy, due to medical bills and insufficient savings, more demands as family caregivers, struggles with affordable housing, elder abuse and inadequate pay for home care aides and other jobs in the care economy, and other issues. It is time to include the impact of these issues on women whose reproductive years are behind them and end the neglect of issues facing older women in a feminist agenda.

The roundtable panelists included:

– Dr. Lilliam Barrios-Paoli, Senior Advisor to the President, Hunter College

– Vicki Been, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, City of New York

– Jacqueline M. Ebanks, Executive Director, New York City Commission on Gender Equity

– Linda P. Fried, Dean and DeLamar Professor of Public Health, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University

– Dr. Lisa Hollis-Sawyer, Associate Professor of Psychology, Northeastern Illinois University

– Jed A. Levine, President and CEO, CaringKind

– Ana Oliveira, President and CEO, The New York Women’s Foundation

– Merble Reagon, Executive Director, NYC Women’s Center for Education and Career Advancement

– Bobbie Sackman, Workplace Discrimination Coordinator, New York State Alliance for Retired Americans (NYSARA) – NYC Chapter

– Dana Sussman, Deputy Commissioner for Intergovernmental Affairs and Policy, New York City Commission on Human Rights

– Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO, Partnership for New York City

– Azadeh Khalili, NYC Department for the Aging

Statement From Senator Liz Krueger On State Pension Fund Coal Review

Albany – State Senator Liz Krueger released the following statement today regarding the announcement by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli that his office will review whether to divest from 27 coal companies:

“I commend Comptroller DiNapoli for taking this first step down the inevitable and necessary path to fossil fuel divestment. There is absolutely no question that coal has become a lose-lose investment, both for the fund’s bottom line and for the future of our society; state workers and retirees will be better off when these companies are no longer in the portfolio. Much of the credit for this progress should go to the dedicated climate activists who continue to push this issue to the fore.

“However, in reality, this kind of incremental action is not commensurate with the severity of the crisis we’re facing. I continue to urge the Comptroller to reach the logical conclusion of today’s announcement, and move swiftly to fully divest the pension fund from all oil, gas, and coal producers.

“My bill, the Fossil Fuel Divestment Act, creates a responsible process for identifying and divesting from the companies most at risk of rapid loss of value in the coming transition. The bill continues to gain momentum in the Legislature, recently climbing to 30 co-sponsors in the Senate. But I have also said since day one that I would be more than happy for the Comptroller to beat us to the punch and take this responsible step on his own. The climate crisis, and our responsibility to both current and future retirees, demands nothing less.”

###
BACKGROUND:
The recently updated Fossil Fuel Divestment Act, which has 30 co-sponsors in the Senate and 41 in the Assembly, would direct the New York State Comptroller to divest the state employee pension fund, called the Common Retirement Fund, from all direct and indirect investments in companies that meet the bill’s definition of coal, oil, or gas producers. Divestment from coal producers would be completed within two years; divestment from oil and gas producers would be completed within five years. Divestment would be subject to a Determination of Prudence issued by the Comptroller, certifying that divestment complies with his fiduciary obligations and the “prudent investor rule” as defined in state law.

Supporters of divestment argue not only that it is no longer acceptable to financially support the extraction of climate-destabilizing fossil fuels, but also that the state pension fund is exposed to increasing financial risk by holding onto fossil fuel companies, which stand to lose significant value as the world acts to mitigate climate change. A recent report from Carbon Tracker revealed that no major oil company is making capital investments that align with the goals of the Paris Agreement to keep global warming below 2°C, let alone the now broadly accepted goal of 1.5°C. The Common Retirement Fund has lost more than $260 million in coal investments since 2010, and a recent study by Corporate Knights estimated that the Fund is valued at $22.2 billion less than it would have been had it divested from fossil fuels in 2008 and redistributed those monies across the rest of the portfolio.

Whereas the previous version of the bill required the Comptroller to divest from all companies listed in the Carbon Underground 200, the new bill requires the creation of an exclusion list of fossil fuel producers defined by several risk factors: the percentage of revenue derived from fossil fuel production, the percentage of global fossil fuel production for which the company is responsible, and the potential future carbon dioxide emissions contained in the company’s reported coal, oil, or gas reserves.

Companies placed on the exclusion list would have an opportunity to contest their inclusion, either by demonstrating that they had been added in error, or by presenting clear and convincing evidence that they will have moved out of fossil fuel production and no longer meet the list criteria by 2030. In other words, fossil fuel producers that are making real and demonstrable strides to wind down their oil, gas, or coal production in a timely fashion will not be subject to divestment.

The new bill also contains a significant change to protect the Comtproller’s investment discretion and address concerns about constitutionality. Before divestment can commence, the Comptroller must issue a Determination of Prudence, stating whether he believes that divestment from any or all of the companies on the exclusion list complies with his fiduciary responsibility and the “prudent investor rule” defined in state law. If the Comptroller determines it would not be prudent to divest from any particular company, that company would be removed from the exclusion list. All companies removed from the list would be reconsidered for exclusion within five years.

Worldwide there are currently 1,145 institutions that have committed to divest, including universities, faith-based organizations, non-profits, municipalities, philanthropic organizations, and national and state pension funds, controlling $11.54 trillion in assets. In 2018, Ireland became the world’s first nation to fully divest its $10.4 billion sovereign wealth fund from fossil fuels.

The list of institutions involved in the divestment movement includes the Teachers Retirement System of the City of New York, New York City Employees Retirement System, California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), California State Teacher’s Retirement System; Pratt Institute, Union Theological Seminary of New York City, The New School, and Stanford and Syracuse Universities; the cities of Seattle, San Francisco, Portland, Minneapolis, and Ithaca; the World Council of Churches, and the United Methodist Church USA; Guardian Media Group, the Rockefeller Brothers and Family Funds, The Blumenthal Foundation, and the sovereign wealth fund of Norway. A full list of divestment commitments can be viewed here.

The global divestment movement is having an impact on fossil fuel producers, in part through the process of stigmatization, which can damage enterprise value by discouraging engagement by business partners, employees, lenders, governments, politicians, etc, as well as leading to restrictive legislation. The increased scrutiny tar sands have received as a result of divestment and allied stigmatization campaigns was a contributing factor to Exxon’s decision to write down the value of its tar sands reserves. Peabody Energy, a coal producer that went bankrupt in 2016, said of the divestment movement: “the impact of such efforts may adversely affect the demand for and price of securities issued by us, and impact our access to the capital and financial markets.” Shell now cites divestment as a major material risk to its current business model, which could lead to project delays or cancellations and could affect its ability to access capital.

The Common Retirement Fund, with $210.5 billion in assets as of March 31st, 2019, has invested $2.7 million in Peabody Energy, $133 million in Shell, and over $1 billion in Exxon, and has between $6 and $12 billion directly or indirectly invested in all fossil fuel producers.

Krueger, Kaminsky, Jaffee Introduce Bill To Ban Cigarette Filters

Albany – Today, State Senators Liz Krueger and Todd Kaminsky, and Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee introduced the Tobacco Product Waste Reduction Act, S.7259, which would prohibit the sale of cigarettes with single-use filters (also known as “butts”), attachable single-use filters, and single-use electronic cigarettes.

“Cigarette butts are everywhere – littering our streets, our parks, and our waterways, and spreading plastic pollution and toxic chemicals into our environment and our food supply,” said Senator Krueger. “The evidence is clear that in spite of all the Big Tobacco propaganda, filters do not make cigarettes any safer, and they may in fact make cigarettes even more deadly. Add to that all the discarded single-use e-cigarettes, which contain lithium-ion batteries and extremely poisonous liquid nicotine, and it’s clear that we need to act. It’s time for New York to nip these butts in the bud.”

“As Chair of the Committee on Children and Families, it is always my priority to ensure that our youth lead healthy, productive lives,” said Assemblywoman Jaffee. “Banning single use cigarette butts ensures that our youth do not begin a damaging cycle of tobacco use. Currently, 10,600 youth in New York become new daily smokers and an estimated 280,000 New York youth now alive will die early from smoking. Think too, of the detrimental effects cigarette butts have on our environment. Cigarette butts are a plastic product that significantly contributes to pollution in waterways and beaches and impacts the health of fish and other wildlife as well as the safety of the food supply for humans. We can reduce the harmful impact cigarette butts have on our environment by banning them in New York State.”

“Big Tobacco has spent decades misleading the public about the health benefits of filters in cigarettes,” said Senator Kaminsky. “Not only do these products fail to protect smokers but they also produce massive amounts of pollution and garbage.”

Despite what many people believe, cigarette filters, also known as butts, do not improve the safety or healthfulness of cigarettes. In fact, research indicates that filters likely increase the negative public health effects of cigarettes. Cigarette butts are also a plastic product that significantly contributes to pollution in waterways and beaches, and impacts the health of fish and other wildlife as well as the safety of the food supply for humans.

The Tobacco Product Waste Reduction Act would ban the sale in New York State of cigarettes with filters, as well as attachable single-use filters, and single use e-cigarettes, effective January 1st, 2022.

“Adding plastic filters to cigarettes poses no health benefit to smokers, and creates a massive source of toxic tobacco litter,” said Ilana Knopf, Director of the Public Health and Tobacco Policy Center at Northeastern University School of Law. “This bill corrects a history of industry deception and protects both human health and the natural environment.”

“Cigarette butts are a major source of plastic pollution and they leach nicotine and heavy metals into the water,” said Judith Enck, founder of Beyond Plastics and former EPA Regional Administrator. “People who would never litter a bag or a bottle, routinely flick butts into the environment, resulting in trillions of butts littering the earth each year. Cigarette filters are made from plastic cellulose acetate and eventually break down into micro plastics. We now face a new pollution threat from e-cigarettes. This is a very important bill that will help improve the environment in very significant ways.”

It is now well established, though not widely known to the public, that cigarette filters do not improve the safety or health of tobacco products, and are primarily a marketing tool to make cigarettes appear safer to consumers. Several studies, as well as reports from the Surgeon General, have found that filters may even make cigarettes more dangerous. According to a 2014 Surgeon General’s report, “evidence suggests that ventilated filters may have contributed to higher risks of lung cancer by enabling smokers to inhale more vigorously, thereby drawing carcinogens contained in cigarette smoke more deeply into lung tissue.” A 2017 study from the National Cancer Institute concurred, recommending that “the FDA should consider regulating [filter use], up to and including a ban.”

The perception that filtered cigarettes are safer also encourages smoking and leads to increased public harm. The 2017 NCI study found that “lower tar yield [i.e. filtered] cigarettes became the preferred choice of many smokers who perceived them to be a lower health risk because of health messaging. This perception was reinforced by the sensation of reduced harshness when smoking.” In 2010, the United States joined Canada and the EU in prohibiting the use of tobacco packaging or advertising using terms like “light,” “mild,” or “low,” which convey the false impression that filters reduce risk.

Electronic cigarettes and similar products also pose health hazards and may contribute to youth smoking and reduced smoking cessation, regardless of nicotine content. These products contain or produce chemicals other than nicotine known to be toxic, carcinogenic and causative of respiratory and heart distress. Emissions from these products may contain particulate matter, harmful to those exposed, including bystanders involuntarily exposed. The FDA has presented evidence of nicotine and other toxicants in exhaled electronic cigarette aerosol and stated exposure should be limited.

Nicotine-containing electronic cigarettes are the most common nicotine products used by students, with three million middle and high school students using them in 2015, according to a study published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The FDA has expressed concern that use of these products, whether or not they contain nicotine, will provide visual cues to youth and will renormalize cigarette smoking and use of tobacco products, undermining tobacco control efforts and contributing to smoking initiation and reduced cessation, particularly among youth.

In addition to their negative public health impacts, cigarette butts are the most collected item internationally in beach and waterway cleanup programs. It is estimated that 845,000 tons of cigarette butts end up as litter annually worldwide. Cigarette butts have been described as “the last socially acceptable form of litter.”

Nearly all cigarette filters are made of cellulose acetate, a kind of plastic. They are not biodegradable, but they do break down into small particles that end up in waterways, in the bodies of fish and other animals, and eventually back in our food supply. Along the way, filters trap toxins from smoking, including arsenic, cadmium, toluene, nicotine, and ethylphenol, as well as bio-accumulating toxins from the environment. Even if filters could be made of biodegradable materials, the toxins accumulated in the smoking process would still render those cigarette butts hazardous waste.

Single-use electronic cigarettes and cartridges contain components such as lithium-ion batteries, as well as toxic chemicals and liquid nicotine that together qualify them as electronic, toxic, and hazardous waste. A single user could discard hundreds of single-use e-cigarettes every year. Such waste is inappropriate for standard municipal collection, and the cost to individual municipalities of cleaning up cigarette butts and single-use electronic cigarettes can run into the tens of millions of dollars.

Littered cigarette filters and liquid nicotine from single-use electronic cigarettes and cartridges also pose a health threat to young children. In 2013, the American Association of Poison Control Centers reported receiving over 8,500 reports of children under age 13 poisoned by cigarettes, cigarette butts, and other tobacco products. Children poisoned by cigarette butts or liquid nicotine can experience vomiting, nausea, lethargy, eye irritation, and gagging. Calls to American poison control centers concerning liquid nicotine exposures increased from one in February 2010 to 215 in February 2014, most of which involved children under the age of five, according to a study published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

Rich Schrader, New York Legislative Director at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) said: “On top of cutting countless lives too short, cigarettes litter New York beaches and pollute our waterways with their hazardous filters. The hundreds of thousands of cigarette butts collected every year trap harmful toxins that get ingested by fish and other marine life and jeopardize our food supply. And to boot, local municipalities are on the hook for the costly cleanup. Butts are a public health danger and an enormous waste that we should absolutely do without.”

Jeremy Cherson, Legislative Advocacy Manager for Riverkeer, said: “Cigarette butts and single-use plastic e-cigarettes are a common form of plastic-based litter volunteers find on the shores of the Hudson each spring during our annual Riverkeeper Sweep. When cigarette filters contact water they release a cornucopia of toxic chemicals that are harmful to aquatic life and provide no public health benefit, as commonly assumed.”

Liz Moran, Environmental Policy Director for NYPIRG, said: “Cigarette filters pollute our environment and make smoking even more deadly. Increasingly cigarette and e-cigarette filters are the number one item found during beach cleanups. Not only are trillions of cigarette filters contributing to the global plastic pollution crisis, they are also introducing toxic materials into waterways, like nicotine and heavy metals, threatening drinking water quality and killing marine life. Cigarette filters should be banned entirely. NYPIRG thanks Senators Krueger and Kaminsky, and Assemblymember Jaffee, for carrying this important legislation.”
