By Elizabeth Christensen
Albany, NY – Governor Pataki has won praise from the Adirondack Council for protecting loons, supporting an adirondack museum, and agreeing on an environmental spending plan with the legislature.
The group released it's annual "State of the Park" report on issues affecting the Adirondacks.
Attorney General Eliot Spitzer was also cited by the group for his work on acid rain and his efforts to negotiate legislation increasing penalties for timber theft.
Pataki's Democratic challenger for Governor was also cited positively in the report for forcing the legislature to come up with a reasonable spending plan for the environmental protection fund.
