Cuomo To Sign Power Plant Siting Bill
Amplify’d from
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is holding a ceremony today at the Capitol to sign the power plant siting bill that passed the Legislature in June.
The bill, called the Power New York Act, will establish a new Article X power plant siting law and create a panel to oversee the development of power-generating facilities in the state. The state has been without a new siting law since 2003.
Cuomo is expected to use the new law as a way to find alternative energy sources to the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Buchanan, Westchester County, which Cuomo has vowed to close.
