The Environmental Protection Agency has rejected almost all of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's proposal to use clean water funds to help finance the new Tappan Zee Bridge, announcing Tuesday that only $29 million of Cuomo's $511 million plan meet federal requirements.

While New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo easily captured the Democratic nomination for governor last week, a relatively strong showing by his progressive challenger in the primary could sustain a long-term effort to combat the state's implementation of the Common Core State Standards and the way it uses tests for K-12 accountability.
