Legislature Supports Proposed State Legislation to Block Proposed Romulus Incinerator

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

The Legislature, by unanimous vote (Legislator Deborah Dawson was excused), urged passage of bills currently before the State Senate and Assembly, which would create The Finger Lakes Community Act of 2019, precluding construction of the proposed Circular energy garbage incinerator in Romulus, or any other such incinerator, in the Finger Lakes region. Last December the Legislature passed a similar opposition resolution, but proposed State legislation was not enacted before the end of the 2018 legislative session.
