NYS Senator Eric Adams joins his Majority Conference colleagues to pass hydrofracking moratorium legislation protecting New York’s watershed during a comprehensive study of the consequences of drilling in the Marcellus Shale
NYS Senator Eric Adams states: “The New York State Senate placed public safety above special interests by passing a moratorium on gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale. We are concerned about the possibility that our State’s water supply might become contaminated by the hazardous chemicals used in the procedure known as hydraulic fracturing, or hydrofracking. The moratorium is designed to protect the health and economic well-being of millions of New Yorkers who draw their water from the affected area.
