Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Federal Ruling Against the Constitutional Pipeline
JANUARY 11, 2018
“No corporation should be allowed to endanger our natural resources, and the Constitution Pipeline represented a threat to our water quality and our environment. I commend the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for ruling in favor of New York’s efforts to prevent this project from moving forward.
“In New York, we will not relent in our fight to protect our environment and ensure a cleaner, healthier future. From record investments in our clean water infrastructure to our bold clean energy goal of generating 50 percent of New York’s electricity from renewable energy sources, New York is stepping up for the future of our planet, our economy, and our children.”
