Please add your name to a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo, urging him to sign into law legislation to help protect the Hudson River from oil barges.
The deadline for signing on is this Thursday, October 19 at 6:00 pm.
This summer, the legislature passed a bill that would give the Department of Environmental Conservation the authority to establish “tanker avoidance zones” in the Hudson River.
This was in response to a proposal to turn the river into a virtual parking lot for fracked oil by creating 10 new locations for barges carrying petroleum.
This sign-on letter is open to any non-profit organization, faith institution, business, political club, civic group, labor union, or student organization. Read more.
