Rep. Maloney Proposes Hudson River Protection Act

On Monday, U.S. Representative Sean Patrick Maloney announced he has proposed the Hudson River Protection Act. If passed, the federal legislation would stop the current and any future anchorage proposals on the Hudson River and would prohibit the secretary of Homeland Security, the department which oversees the Coast Guard, from building new anchorage sites for vessels with cargo of hazardous or flammable material within 5 miles of a Superfund site, a nuclear power plan, a National Register of Historic Places site or any habitats for an endangered species. Maloney said, “the last thing we need are dangerous oil tankers parking on our shores.”
