(Page 3 of 3)
State Assemblyman Harvey Weisenberg, a Democrat, said the majority of his constituents were against Port Ambrose’s construction.

Roger Clayman, executive director of the Long Island Federation of Labor, said that Port Ambrose would provide “jobs that are good for the planet.”

“We can’t just turn off the switch on fossil fuel,” Clayman said. “We want to move quickly to renewables, but it takes time. We need a mix of different energy sources.”

If Liberty receives all the necessary permits and approval by Christie and Cuomo, construction could begin as early as 2015, according to the company’s website.
