A ruling on the fate of the Hudson is coming any day now. EPA Region 2 Administrator Pete Lopez—who formerly represented the Hudson Valley in the NYS Assembly—will soon make the decision on whether the Hudson gets the additional PCB cleanup necessary to restore the river’s health. We need a revitalized Hudson to keep the region’s people, communities and economies strong.
