Reject the Clean Water Loan for the Tappan Zee Bridge
The Environmental Facilities Corporation must not approve the $511 million dollar loan to subsidize the Tappan Zee Bridge at your June 26 meeting.
Clean Water Act State Revolving Fund loans are intended to improve water quality and protect drinking water -- not to subsidize transportation projects and keep tolls down.
Diverting money meant to protect and improve New York's water quality for a transportation project has never been done before and it could set a dangerous precedent. Let's not be the first state to re-appropriate funds in this way.
Please reject this proposal so we can continue to fund water treatment projects and update our water infrastructure instead.
