Vigil planned to pressure G.E. on Hudson River cleanup

Capital New York reported: "Nine municipalities along the Hudson River will hold a candlelight vigil Thursday evening to put pressure on General Electric and Governor Andrew Cuomo to remove more pollutants from the river.

G.E. is winding down a six-year dredging of the Hudson for PCBs the company dumped there for decades. A bipartisan group of lawmakers from both houses of the state Legislature have called on G.E. to continue its work and leave behind equipment used in the dredging project. They have also called on Cuomo to pressure G.E. not to leave a job unfinished. G.E. Officials have repeatedly said the company will not conduct more dredging in other areas of the river."  Read more here.
