Coast Guard suspends anchorage push

Jun 30, 2017 12:02 am
Matt Coyne at lohud.com reports that the Coast Guard has called off, for now, an attempt to create ten anchorage sites on the Hudson River between Poughkeepsie and Yonkers for large barges. The Coast Guard said it would, "suspend future rulemaking decisions" on the proposal that was supported by the commercial shipping industry and opposed by environmental groups and most local elected officials. In recent days the legislature in Albany passed a bill blocking the anchorages, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo had not signed that bill at the time of the Coast Guard's announcement. Cuomo has not said whether he will sign the legislation or not. Read the full story at lohud.com.
