18 Jun: Stack Bill To Protect Hudson River Palisades Advances

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Brian P. Stack to protect the Hudson River Palisades, as well as the residents and communities in the area, by prohibiting most new development on the cliff slopes and creating protective buffers within the region was approved today by the Senate Environment and Energy Committee.

“The Hudson River Palisades have been defaced by development in recent years. We will never be able to restore them to their natural state, or to re-establish the stability and security of the cliff slopes, but we can act to prevent further deterioration of the structure,” said Senator Stack (D-Hudson). “Preserving and enhancing the Hudson River Palisades as a prime natural resource will protect the residents and the communities in this area, as well as preserve this important national landmark.”
