State rejects Constitution natural gas pipeline on environmental grounds
By Brian Nearing April 22, 2016
For the second time in a week, a major natural gas pipeline project in the state appears to have hit the rocks. . . .
“We, the people, won through a mix of strategic planning, focused organizing, and sheer determination against all odds,” said Anne Marie Garti, a founding member of the group Stop the Pipeline and an attorney volunteering with the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic. The group is “extremely grateful to Gov. Cuomo, the DEC, and those who believed in our goals, and worked to make this happen.”
