Messenger Post (9/15) (from Steuben County) Editorial: State investigations, oversight critical
Another recent editorial calling on the state to thoroughly investigate the allegations against wind developers of improper dealing and to take an increased role in wind project siting:
…The state must investigate all such conflicts to see if wrongdoing occurred. Local officials must act in a manner beyond reproach by turning down all entreaties from private wind-turbine developers dangling lucrative lease deals in front of them. And the governor, state Legislature and attorney general must study this entire approval process so that localities have clear guidelines within which to operate.
