"The biggest message is that we don't want junk science. This Health Department report that came out, the Zucker report, is junk science. We've gone through it and looked at it. He promised us it would be based on good science and we really expected that. And, it is not," said Dan Fitzsimmons, the President of the JLCNY. Senator Libous was in Albany during the rally, but expressed his support for the landowners in a statement.
"It’s most unfortunate for our farmers, landowners, retailers, hospitality and construction workers looking for growth and opportunity."
The next step for the landowners is to wait for the DEC to finally release its Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) report.
