Gun Lobby opposes DEC commissioner nominee

Oswego, New York – The confirmation of Governor Spitzer's nominee to be the state's Environmental Commissioner is once again being held up.

A Senate committee this week questioned Alexander "Pete" Grannis but failed to hold a vote to confirm the long-time State Assemblyman. Opposition to his nomination is coming from the gun lobby...hunters and sportsmen's groups.

WRVO's Chris Ulanowski spoke to Tom King...President of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.
