Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) released the following statement after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo vetoed the Port Ambrose LNG project, slated to sit 28 nautical miles off the coast of Long Branch:

“Today is a major victory in our efforts to protect the environment and our natural resources. I applaud Governor Cuomo for standing up and vetoing this project today just as Governor Christie did in 2011.

“Liberty Natural Gas has been sent a message loud and clear. The Governors of New York and New Jersey, elected officials, and residents from both states do not want this project, and I couldn’t be happier that it will not move forward.

“The proposed Port Ambrose LNG facility had far too many risks to our ocean and coastal communities and had no benefit for citizens of New Jersey. There were no new jobs, no new energy sources, and zero economic benefits.

“The obligation to protect our oceans is one that I take very seriously and that is why I have been steadfast in my opposition of all iterations of this dangerous project, dating back to 2009.”
