Earlier this summer, the Coast Guard provided notice that they intended to propose a rule, which would allow the construction of ten new anchorage sites along our beautiful Hudson River. This forthcoming proposal is a disaster – the Hudson should not be a parking lot for dangerous oil tankers. I oppose this potential proposal and I think folks deserve to have their voices heard – so I got to work extending the public comment period to ensure you have the opportunity to voice your concerns and share your opinions on this important issue.
Please submit your comments. The Riverkeeper organizations have worked too hard for too long to clean up the Hudson River to backslide into this situation now. It’s not wanted and it’s not appropriate. It needs to be stopped.
