LIU ON PCB SETTLEMENT

LIU ON SETTLEMENT OF PCB LAWSUIT

Comptroller John C. Liu stated the following about New York City's settlement of the New York Communities for Change-New York Lawyers in the Public Interest lawsuit over the toxic PCBs in light fixtures in public schools:

"The settlement of this suit through the City's agreement to an accelerated timeline for ridding our schools of toxic PCBs is a win all around. We stand ready to work with City Hall to finance the capital projects necessary with Green Apple Bonds, which would pay for the rapid cleanup of these chemicals while saving taxpayers $339 million and lowering the City's carbon footprint. Now is the time."
