SENATOR SQUADRON JOINS ADVOCATES, ELECTEDS TO RALLY AGAINST HYDROFRACKING

NEW YORK -- Today, State Senator Daniel Squadron submitted testimony to DEC's final public hearing on hydrofracking, held at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in his district. Before the hearing, Senator Squadron rallied with advocates and elected officials in support of a state-wide ban on fracking. The testimony is copied and attached below.

"If fracking's not worth the risk in the New York City and Syracuse watersheds, it's not worth the risk in any New York communities," said Senator Squadron. "We simply do not know how the many chemicals used in fracking will impact our long-term heath and our environment.  History is filled with examples in which understanding the entire picture would have prevented costs that were never worth it.  We don’t want to look back and wish that we had not taken this risk. New York must implement a state-wide ban on hydrofracking now."
