As if that wasn’t enough, last Wednesday, the Assembly approved legislation that would impose a two year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.
Enough is enough. New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation has been studying this issue for 4 ½ years. And the Assembly wants to study it for two more years? Why not study it for the next decade?
Thankfully, the Senate is not expected to take up the bill. Senator Skelos said that DEC and DOH “should be allowed to complete their study so the governor can make an informed and final decision as soon as possible.”
