I strongly urge NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, NY State Department of Transportation Commissioner Matthew Driscoll, NYS Thruway Authority Acting Executive Director Bill Finch, NYS DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos, and Federal Highway Administration NY State Adminstrator Peter Osborn to:
Reject any proposal by Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings LLC or other entities for construction of crude oil and refined product pipelines in the NYS Thruway right-of-way. The proposed Pilgrim pipelines would carry fracked, volatile Bakken (and/or Tar Sands) crude oil and flammable refined products between Albany, NY and Linden, NJ, posing unnecessary and unacceptable risks to the health, safety, and welfare of communities along the proposed pipeline path, to our waterways and climate, and to Thruway travelers.
