Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Troy) spoke with reporters inside the first floor of the state Capitol.

McLaughlin discussed today’s announcement that the United States Congress Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has joined his call to investigate the EPA and Cuomo administration for gross malfeasance of the Hoosick Falls water crisis.

McLaughlin also commented on yesterday’s announcement from Democrat Speaker Carl Heastie that the state Assembly will hold water quality legislative hearings in September. The hearings will be geared to seek answers into the poor handling of the Hoosick Falls water crisis.
