Coast Guard’s barge plan faces increased opposition


News 12 Westchester: There’s a new push to stop a proposal by the U.S. Coast Guard to anchor 10 barges along the Hudson River.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is requesting that U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson order the Coast Guard to withdraw its plans.

The Coast Guard wants to establish the anchor sites for 43 vessels in the Hudson from Yonkers to Kingston.

Schneiderman calls the Hudson River a priceless natural resource and says this plan would threaten that.
