New York’s Dark Skies Bill a Model for Outdoor Lighting

New York Governor Cuomo signs into law the Dark Skies bill, which establishes requirements for outdoor lighting applications installed by state agencies. Specifically, the bill requires the use of properly shielded light fixtures to prevent unnecessary up- and side-lighting, thereby reducing sky glow. The bill also limits lighting to only recommended levels for particular applications.
