Abinanti Applauds EPA for Rejecting Most of Clean Water Loan for New Tappan Zee Bridge

Assemblyman Tom Abinanti (D-Greenburgh/Mt. Pleasant) applauded the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its decision to reject most of the proposed $511 million loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (the Clean Water Fund) to the New York State Thruway Authority to pay for its Tappan Zee Construction Project.

“I applaud the EPA for rendering a common-sense interpretation of the law,” said Abinanti, who represents the Tarrytown side of the bridge. “The winners here are the environment and municipalities that need these funds to keep their water clean.”

In a statement issued in July, Assemblyman Abinanti opposed the loan arguing that the State should be maximizing clean water projects, not diminishing the number of projects by diverting monies from the Clean Water Fund.

He also argued that it is inappropriate to use monies intended to remedy existing damage to the Hudson River to pay for activities that will further damage the river.

“The cost of preventing or mitigating harm to the environment should be included in the actual cost of bridge construction,” said Abinanti. “The State should not be hiding the true cost of the project in an environmental fund that is dedicated for other projects.”

Abinanti Announces Run for Reelection

I am running for re-election to the NYS Assembly in this November’s election.

I’ve worked hard representing our community. I’ve passed some important legislation. Just as importantly, I’ve been a strong voice for our suburban needs – a strong advocate for

* Better Education – and critical of the State Education Department’s misguided new policies

* Preserving our Environment – and very concerned about attempts to open vast areas of New York to hydrofracking for natural gas

* Fairness for People with Special Needs – and highly critical of our State’s failure to meet their growing education, health care, housing and employment needs

* Promoting Gun Safety

* Protecting Women’s Rights

I’m expecting to have even more input on state policy as I rise in seniority (I was recently appointed chair of a Sub-Committee.)

But to continue to fight for the things that you and I care about, I need to raise funds for the up-coming campaign and I need them now.

Until public financing becomes a reality in New York, you’re all that stands between government of the people, by the people and for the people and government owned by big money. Call me at 914-328-9000 anytime you want to discuss the issues that matter most to you. I need and look forward to your support.
