(New York – NY) In an effort to ensure that East Side residents have an opportunity to voice their opinions on high volume hydraulic fracturing, also known as hydrofracking, Senator Liz Krueger and Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh hosted a Speak Out on Hydrofracking on Wednesday, November 9th at Baruch College.
“The proposal to allow hydrofracking in the State of New York is one which could affect millions of residents throughout our state,” said Senator Liz Krueger. “Any risk to our clean water and air could affect everyone throughout the State. So it’s important that residents have as many opportunities as possible to voice their opinion, whether it be in support or opposition to the drilling.”
NEW YORK - A final hearing on proposals to lift a ban on natural gas drilling in New York state drew a crowd of protesters on Wednesday opposing further energy development in the state.
New York City hosted the last of four hearings to discuss the Department of Environmental Conservation's new rules that could open the state's borders next year to a controversial drilling technique known as fracking.
