On Wednesday, March 27, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced a settlement agreement between New York State, Scenic Hudson and Riverkeeper that committed $11.5 million in environmental protective measures to be put into place during construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
We're pleased to report that under Gov. Andrew Cuomo's leadership and with sustained support from the Legislature, the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF)—the state's primary tool for investing in the environment—received a welcome boost in the recently approved 2013‐14 Budget. After years of decreases or flat funding, the EPF was increased from $134 million to $153 million. Thanks for your support in helping to make this happen!
