Cuomo Seeks to Halt Spectra Gas Line Work Near Nuclear Plant

Updated on

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo urged federal energy regulators on Monday to suspend construction on a Spectra Energy Corp. natural-gas pipeline that he said may pose safety risks because of its proximity to a nuclear power plant.

Work on an expansion of the Algonquin gas pipeline should be suspended until the state has the chance to analyze the safety of such a gas network being located within miles of Entergy Corp.’s Indian Point nuclear power plant, Cuomo said in a statement Monday.
