Business Council statement on Court decision in favor of Valley Lateral Project

ALBANY, N.Y.—“Today’s decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to authorize Millennium Pipeline to construct the Valley Lateral Project is welcome news to New York State’s businesses and consumers. The decision shows that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation cannot impede the transport of interstate natural gas by refusing to act on a request for a certification. We hope this decision will force the state to recognize that natural gas can and should be a vital part of New York’s energy mix going forward.”
