HUDSON VALLEY—When preservation professionals from across New York State gather for a two-day conference later this month in Rochester, one of the eight presentations will be dedicated to competing transmission line projects that could have powerful negative impacts on communities throughout New York State. Three members of the Hudson Valley Smart Energy Coalition will share information about how historic resources need to factor into major utility projects and how citizen advocacy can make an impact.

TAKE ACTION: It's Time for a Moratorium on Crude Oil Shipments through our Valley

April 4, 2014 - 4:23pm -- Scenic Hudson

Vanderburgh Cove

The unprecedented and dangerous increase in the shipment of highly volatile Bakken crude oil through our communities risks contaminating our clean water and decimating our tourism economy. That’s why I’m asking you to call for a moratorium on volatile crude oil shipments TODAY.
