"Will be done shortly"

Perhaps not long now until we find out what the Department of Environmental Conservation will do with their flawed SGEIS:

"We don't have a hard date, but it will be done shortly," Cuomo said on Albany's 1300-AM (WGDJ)....

"I think it's actually better that we do it when the Legislature is not here, because I don't want a political discussion."

We'll see. I do wonder if this:

"This is the classic balance of the state's role versus local government's role versus federal," Cuomo said. "And many times the state takes the position of, 'Thank you federal government for your opinion, but we're going to do it our way.' Many times a town or a city will say, 'That's nice, I'm glad you think that Albany, but stick to Albany, we know better. Government closest to home knows the best.' "

Is a signal that he's planning to include the home rule provisions suggested by last week's trial balloon leak. Maybe, maybe not.
