Jan 29, 2009 — Governor David Paterson wants to cut tens of millions of dollars from the Environmental Protection Fund. That's the pool of money that pays for big environment projects in New York, including land conservation in the Adirondacks. Governor Paterson also wants to change the way the EPF is paid for, using new revenue that he hopes to create by expanding the state's bottle deposit law. Green groups say the new plan isn't reliable and bottling companies are promising to fight what they call a new tax on their businesses. Brian Mann reports.
