NY - Bethlehem board votes 'no' on National Grid pipeline

From Albany/Hudson Valley NY Organizer, Megan Root:

"Last month the town of East Greenbush (the east end of the pipeline) passed a resolution opposing the E37 Albany Pipeline Loop. Now the town of Bethlehem (the west end of the pipeline loop) joins in with voting to oppose this expansion. This is a result (although not mentioned) of Mothers Out Front organizing in the Town of Bethlehem to gain support. We were the main group out front on this end of this dirty fracked gas pipeline expansion."

From the article

The Bethlehem Town Board voted Wednesday night to oppose a $70 million natural gas pipeline that National Grid wants to build from Glenmont and under the Hudson River into Rensselaer County.

The town joins East Greenbush in opposition to the project, which needs approval from the state Public Service Commission.

"I don't think that these natural gas pipelines are our future," [Maureen] Cunningham said. "I don't think anyone believes they are. I do think that we have to look at the repercussions of every energy source."
