New York says "No Thanks" to Broadwater

In a long-awaited decision, Albany has chosen to deny the first of several permits the LNG project requires from various New York State agencies. They "...found the project inconsistent with six of 13 criteria under New York's coastal zone management plan".

Good news for the opposition, but the war is likely to wage on in Federal courts. CT has no jurisdiction over the proposal as the facility would lie entirely on the NY side of Long Island Sound.

CT Sec of State Susan Bysiewicz put out this press release regarding the decision.
