Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released the following statement on Governor Hochul signing a bill to protect the Hudson River from Indian Point decommissioning wastewater:

“I applaud Governor Hochul for signing this bill into law to prevent the radioactive water at Indian Point from being released into the Hudson River, which is a vital waterway with immense environmental, economic, and cultural importance.
