State Sen. Patty Ritchie and Rep. Bill Owens have reached out to an Ogdensburg woman who is the victim of a very bad law.
That's according to Chris Robbins' story in today's Ogdensburg Journal.
Laurel B. Roethel, 85, bought property in Ogdensburg that she says was contaminated before she even got there. But the law (somewhat inexplicably) states that she's responsible for the cleanup — a bill that could surpass $100,000.
Mrs. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, is meeting with Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, Mrs. Roethel told the Journal.
