Tuesday’s conviction of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s former top aide Joseph Percoco on bribery charges involved state business with two companies. One is a power plant in Orange County that is nearing completion. WAMC’s Allison Dunne reports some lawmakers are calling on the state to revoke the plant’s permits.

A pipeline company with plans to hook up to a power plant under construction in Orange County says eminent domain proceedings remain against a handful of landowners. More from WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne.

Former Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich addressed an audience nearly 300 strong in Orange County Wednesday night, joining opponents of a gas power plant.

Two-time presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich was the guest speaker at a forum in Warwick about the CPV Valley Energy Center in Wawayanda.

  Climate activists rallied and marched at the State Capitol in Albany this morning to demand action on the climate – part of their State of the Climate Address.

Speakers included Oscar-nominated actor James Cromwell, a long time political activist, who was arrested last month protesting the CPV power plant and fellow activist Pramilla Malick who is from Protect Orange County. They join us to discuss the climate, the plant and the importance of activism.
