Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On Today’s Amigone Funeral Home Ruling

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement today on today’s Amigone Funeral Home ruling:

"For years, my office has stood steadfastly with the Tonawanda community to protect their right to enjoy clean, fresh air. Today, the court agreed with my office, and required Amigone to obtain a state permit and implement effective pollution controls.  This ruling will ensure that the Amigone crematory never again fouls air and disrupts lives in this community, and sends the message that companies whose facilities pollute our neighborhoods will be held accountable.”
