In a Times Union blog Governors Cuomo silence about GE and the unfinished job of cleaning the Hudson River is the topic: "We can’t recall anyone ever faulting Gov. Andrew Cuomo for being too nice. But for once, we’re wishing he’d play a little hardball when it comes to General Electric Co. and its cleanup of PCBs from the Hudson River.
That cleaning isn’t done, not by several miles. But you wouldn’t know it from the governor’s silence.
With considerable fanfare, GE is shutting down its six-year, billion-dollar cleanup of PCB hot spots in a stretch of the Hudson between Waterford and Fort Edward, where one of its plants dumped tons of the toxic substance for decades. GE boasts that it has fulfilled its commitment to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to clean up one of the nation’s biggest Superfund sites."
