Riverkeeper will present information about the risks associated with crude oil transportation in the Hudson Valley at a meeting of the Ulster Count Legislature.

The Legislature is considering two resolutions which would support Riverkeeper’s calls for a federal ban on the use of faulty DOT-111 cars to transport crude oil by rail, and for state comprehensive environmental studies of the impacts of expanding oil terminals in Albany and New Windsor.

The presentation by Katherine Hudson, Riverkeeper Watershed Program Director, is scheduled for 7 p.m. The vote will come later in the session.
