Anti-Broadwater: Long Islanders Don't Lose Environmental Fights

"Long Island environmental and civic groups have an unequaled track record. We don't lose these fights."

So says Richard Amper, executive director of the Long Island Pine Barrens Society, talking about the Anti-Broadwater Coalition and the proposal for a liquefied natural gas terminal in the middle of Long Island Sound.

He was quoted in a Newsday backgrounder.

Also, "On Tuesday, the Broadwater proposal is scheduled to undergo its first government-convened public hearing in Albany, as four state legislative committees -- the energy and environmental conservation committees of the Assembly and Senate -- convene a rare joint session to scrutinize the plan."
