“Since This Means the Project Is Effectively Dead, Let’s Not Waste Our Time – Pull the Plug Now”
Today, after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced his opposition to offshore natural gas terminals, effectively vetoing a proposed 53-acre development off the coast of Rockaway, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D – Queens and Brooklyn) called for an end to the project.
“Governor Christie has signaled his opposition to this plan. Since this means the project is effectively dead, let’s not waste our time – pull the plug now,” Weiner said. “There’s no need to squander resources reviewing a proposal that is now dead on arrival.”
