Expect a Broadwater Decision by New York in August

If the key decision on Broadwater is to be made by the New York State Department of State, it looks as if we'll be waiting until August to hear what it is. The department wrote to Broadwater's attorneys last week telling them that if the final impact statement is released in June, the department will need three months to review it and decide if putting a liquefied natural gas terminal in the middle of Long Island Sound is consistent with state policies for use of the coastal zone.

As I noted here, the state has already hinted that it thinks it is not consistent. (Broadwater's law firm, by the way, is LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae, a red meat organization if there ever was one.)
