Statement by Business Council President Heather C. Briccetti on pipeline announcement

ALBANY, N.Y.—“We are incredibly disappointed that the administration allowed fear-mongering to once again lead the way,” said Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc. “The decision to deny the approvals necessary for the construction of the Constitution Pipeline will have a direct and immediate negative impact on our state’s economy. Today’s decision also places numerous jobs in jeopardy and puts further strain on our already overworked energy grid.”
