HUDSON VALLEY—Following news today that a barge carrying 65,000 barrels of gasoline ran aground in the Hudson River, Scenic Hudson renewed its call for the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to terminate the rulemaking process that would establish 10 new anchorages in the river for 43 vessels carrying gasoline, explosive crude oil and other hazardous materials. The organization also urged the state Legislature and Congress to enact bills that would halt creation of the anchorages.
