ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) State lawmakers in New York have voted to block plans for a massive trash incinerator proposed for the Finger Lakes region.
By a unanimous vote, the state Senate passed legislation Wednesday that would prohibit the project from moving forward.
The Assembly passed the bill last week. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has already expressed objections to the project.
Environmental groups and local residents had opposed plans for the incinerator between Seneca and Cayuga lakes, citing concerns about the environment, agriculture and tourism.
