New York state has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency opposing a plan to allow dredged sediments to be dumped into the Long Island Sound.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has threatened for more than a year to take the action announced Thursday. He and fellow Democrat Attorney General Eric Schneiderman say the EPA plan will allow tens of millions of cubic yards of dredged sediments to be dumped in the waterway that divides Long Island and Connecticut.

Governor Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., says the state will soon break ground on the new Delta terminal for the rebuilt LaGuardia Airport.

The terminal should be ready for use by 2021. It is part of the estimated $8 billion redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport.

Cuomo says New York is finally investing in its infrastructure.

“We are living off the inheritance, not of our parents, of our grandparents. Everything you see, all the infrastructure you see, everything we built, all these great accomplishments, literally from our grandparents’ generation.”

Governor Cuomo’s name has been mentioned as a potential presidential candidate in 2020, but first, he may be facing some obstacles to win a third term as governor in 2018.
