Lawmakers urge G.E. to conduct further Hudson River cleanup

Capital New York reports today that 141 members of the state Assembly signed a letter on Wednesday urging General Electric to continue dredging the Hudson River for contaminants the company dumped there for decades. Also in a separate letter, members of the Assembly asked Governor Andrew Cuomo to "use the state's full legal power and authority - and influence of his office" to urge GE to continue cleaning up the PCB from the Hudson River.

“Simply put, the current cleanup, without further action, is simply not acceptable, so we call on you to do all that is within your power to remedy this situation by dredging additional toxic hotspots in the river,” the lawmakers wrote in their letter to GE C.E.O. Jeffrey Immelt.
