By -- STATE SEN. BILL PERKINS, New York Amsterdam News
I’m New York State Sen. Bill Perkins; I’m opposed to hydrofracking because it puts our children’s future at risk. New York City residents have a tremendous stake in whether Gov. Andrew Cuomo allows hydrofracking in New York. This dangerous method of natural gas drilling threatens our water, air, food and health. Along with a growing number of elected officials, local leaders and community organizations, I have come to the conclusion that fracking is not safe and should be banned statewide.
