SARATOGA SITES AGAINST NORLITE EMISSIONS, COHOES, NY

 

Capital District residents gathered outside State Street at the Capitol Entrance in Albany on Friday, October 2 at noon to urge the Governor to sign legislation that bans burning of toxic firefighting foam (AFFF) at the Norlite Hazardous Waste incinerator in Cohoes, NY.

 

Governor Cuomo has 10 days to sign or veto the bill, but he has told the Legislature not to send the bill to him.  It has been almost 4 months since the bill was passed. 

 

Stay tuned for updates.
