Blumenthal: Joe Wrong on Broadwater
Plain and simple, the AG today said Lieberman was wrong when he claimed his vote for the Bush-Cheney energy bill didn't give up Connecticut's ability to protect itself from facilities like Broadwater:
State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal disputes claims by U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman's campaign that President Bush's energy bill "in no way hurt" Connecticut and New York's ability to keep a floating natural gas platform out of Long Island Sound.
"There are a number of areas that are still unclear, and the energy policy creates some of the doubts and questions as to the rights of states like Connecticut," Blumenthal said last week. He said the bill places states that deny energy company's permits for projects such as the gas platform at a significant disadvantage in federal court.
