Jul 11, 2006 — In their Sunday editorial, the editors of the Glens Falls Post Star suggested that the Adirondack Park Agency may have outlived its usefulness. A growing number of local government leaders in the Park are attacking the Agency for what they describe as a top-heavy environmental bureaucracy. This week, we'll be talking with some of the key players who will shape the APA's future after Governor George Pataki leaves office. Over the last year, State senator Betty Little, a Republican from Queensbury, has proposed sweeping changes to the Agency. Little's bills, which failed to gain support in the Democrat-controlled Assembly, would have given local governments more control over development, shortened the APA's time-frame for reviewing projects, and eliminated the Agency's oversight over campgrounds. Senator Little spoke about her initiative with Brian Mann.
