‘A threat to our livelihoods:’ Ahead of National Grid hearings, BK pols urge action against new gas vaporizers


A dozen Brooklyn councilmembers on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling on state government agencies to take action against new fossil fuel infrastructure proposed by National Grid ahead of a set of public hearings on the project.

“There is no justification for new infrastructure that supports fossil fuels,” said Williamsburg Councilmember Jennifer Gutiérrez, the resolution’s prime sponsor. “It is 2022, we must do better. We are pushing on National Grid to do right by our communities for the final time.”
