GOSHEN – The Orange County
Legislature, Friday, urged the state legislature and governor to pass
legislation to declare as invalid any project in which direct criminal
conduct by public officials occurred and for which permits were issued.
The memorializing resolution calls for such a measure to be retroactive
and apply to the CPV power plant in Wawayanda.
Former aide to Governor Cuomo, Joseph Percoco, was convicted in federal
court of corruption in connection with the project.
The county legislature voted 20 to nothing in support of the resolution
with Legislator James Kulisek abstaining.
