“As County Executive of Westchester County, I firmly stand behind the New York State law aimed at protecting the Hudson River, a cherished gem for recreation and tourism in our region. The State has rightfully taken measures to safeguard the health and integrity of our waterways. 

“The law passed in 2023, which prohibits the movement of any radiological substance into the Hudson River during the decommissioning of a nuclear power plant, reflects our shared commitment to environmental protection and public safety. The Hudson River holds ecological and economic value for our communities, and it is our responsibility to ensure its preservation for current and future generations. Five County Executives, of both political parties, have stood up for protecting this river.

“We firmly believe that the State has acted in the best interest of our residents and the environment.”

- County Executive George Latimer
