Cuomo Rejects Proposed Gas Terminal Off Coast

NEW YORK (AP) -

Gov. Andrew Cuomo rejected on Thursday a proposal to build a liquefied natural gas terminal in the waters off New York and New Jersey amid an outcry from residents it could endanger the environment and be a target for terrorists.

Liberty Natural Gas LLC, the company vying to develop Port Ambrose, said it would have allowed it to inject natural gas into the New York-area pipeline, which could lower home heating bills there.
