Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on President Trump's Executive Order Limiting State's Authority Over Energy Infrastructure Projects

Posted to Applied Web NY on Wed, 04/10/2019 - 21:02

"President Trump's Executive Order is a gross overreach of federal authority that undermines New York's ability to protect our water quality and our environment. States must have a role in the process for siting energy infrastructure like pipelines, and any efforts to curb this right to protect our residents will be fought tooth and nail.

"Especially at a time when the federal government has abdicated its responsibility to protect our environment and public health, states like New York are on the front lines protecting our clean water and the public health.

"While the Trump Administration continues its hostile assault on our environment, we are proud to be leading the way forward to build the clean energy economy of tomorrow in New York."
