Great News!

The NYS Department of State, which has responsibility for determining whether the Rockaway Lateral is “consistent” with the federal Coastal Zone Management Act, was scheduled to release its report on September 3. Instead, it has requested a second stay, until December 5, 2013, in making its determination.

This almost certainly means that NYS Department of State has concerns about the project and wants additional time to review the matter before making a final determination. The NYS Department of State has the power to kill the pipeline if it feels it is inconsistent with the Coastal Zone Management Program.
