Douglas criticizes Clinton’s support of tire burn

Print More

(Host) Governor Jim Douglas says New York Senator Hillary Clinton is jumping the gun by endorsing a test tire burn at International Paper’s Ticonderoga mill.

Douglas says Clinton’s timing was off when she sent a letter earlier this month to the New York Department of Environmental Conservation urging that it approve the test tire burn.

(Douglas) “I think it’s very premature for a New York senator to inject herself in this controversy before the application has been filed, before the information has been reviewed by the DEC, before the environmental concerns have been considered.”

(Host) The governor says he hopes the company will consider installing new and improved anti-pollution technology.
