UPDATE: NY Daily News has reported that 52 state legislators signed onto the Rosenthal-Hoylman letter!
Great news! State Senator Brad Hoylman and Assembly Member Linda Rosenthal have written a letter to Governor Cuomo asking him to veto the project.
The letter covers all the bases: It makes the point that Port Ambrose is unnecessary, brings up the security and explosion risks of the project, connects the dots between LNG and climate change, AND makes the case that we should build offshore wind in that area instead.
It’s been remarkable over the last few months to see politicians from all sides of the aisle standing up to Port Ambrose. This is an issue that brings together politicians who don’t always agree on many things, and it speaks to the urgency and seriousness of the threat that Port Ambrose poses to our communities.
Here’s how you can help: If your rep didn’t sign on, get them to draft their own letter to Cuomo!
