Beach erosion at Montauk Point State Park

Environmentalists say an Army Corps of Engineers plan to rebuild Montauk beach might not be a sustainable solution. Changes to a decades-old EPA plan could improve Connecticut’s air quality. New York will not have a new state budget by tomorrow’s deadline. And the Pentagon could adopt a new policy to reduce active duty military suicides.
