One Response to Betty Little to head Senate parks committee

  1. John Warren says:

    Unfortunately, Betty Little is the legislature’s staunchest opponent of state funded recreation opportunities. She is an opponent of the Forest Preserve system and the Adirondack Park in particular. She also opposes (and has help hold-up) state purchases of critical habitat in the Adirondacks and the appointment of Adirondack businessman Pete Hornbeck to the Adirondack Park Agency on the grounds that he is an environmentalist.

    This is far from good news – in fact, I doubt it could be worse.
