ROMULUS, N.Y. — Some state legislators are urging the governor to block a project that would bring a trash incinerator to Romulus in Seneca County.
State Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb (R-131) and Assemblyman Phil Palmesano (R-132) both asked Governor Cuomo to reject the project.
Both are part of a team pushing a bill that would give the town of Romulus more authority to decide the fate of the trash incinerator project.
"The Finger Lakes region is one of the most precious regions in our entire state. We should not do anything that puts this precious region at risk," Kolb said.
Assemblyman Kolb may have a sympathetic ear from the governor. Cuomo says the project is not consistent with his administration's goals for protecting the environment.
The governor also says he will consider any other solutions the state legislature proposes.
