A few years ago, Connecticut and New York stood shoulder to shoulder to fight the construction of a liquefied natural gas storage facility in the middle of Long Island Sound. Officials of both states said the proposal by Broadwater Energy would limit recreational opportunities, create a major security risk and be an “environmental menace.”
