Statement on PCB dredging in the Hudson River

The Hudson River is the lifeline of this region; it connects us economically, culturally, and historically. I stand with Senator Gillibrand and share her concerns that the dredging in the river is not complete and the remaining PCBs continue to threaten the well-being of the Hudson. As someone who has long been an outspoken advocate for safeguarding and preserving the vitality of the mighty Hudson, I urge the EPA to reverse its decision to stop PCB dredging.
