Senator Co-sponsored Bill S8129B Calling for Hydrofracking Moratorium in Upstate Watershed
Queens, NY, December 15, 2010 -- "Just imagine that your son or daughter pours themselves a cup of water, and it's brown. Or, it's cloudy with particles and chemicals. That is exactly what is happening to families in other states--Texas, Colorado, and Pennsylvania--who have rushed into drilling for natural gas with a procedure known as hydrofracking. A Pennsylvania couple had even joined my August press conference at City Hall to share their story and show the assembled reporters the jar of brown, smelly water that comes out of their household water tap.
