FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The New York Power Authority is in full compliance with the provisions of its St. Lawrence-FDR Power Project’s federal operating license and we have the utmost confidence that this is well-demonstrated by the facts. The claims in the task force's notices of dispute are false and completely without merit.
