Governor deals blow to hazardous waste

PORTER — It came down to the end, but locals concerned about operations at a nearby hazardous waste site hailed it as a victory.

Gov. George Pataki on Tuesday night signed into law a measure calling for equitable distribution of hazardous waste across the state — a move that could impact work at CWM Chemical Services in the Town of Porter.

"(Gov. Pataki) is putting environmental justice back on the forefront in the state," said Vince Agnello, president of Residents for Responsible Government. "This is a major victory for us."
