Cuomo: Fracking Decison To Come Before 2014 Election
Posted Friday, May 24th 2013 @ 9am  by Jim Donovan

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he'll make a decision on whether to allow shale gas fracking in New York before the 2014 election.

Cuomo says he's waiting for his state health commissioner, Dr. Nirav Shah, to report on his own health review. The Democratic governor told reporters in Syracuse that he had expected Shah's review to be finished by now, but it should be done in the next several weeks. He made similar remarks in February. Development has been on hold since the Department of Environmental Conservation began an environmental impact study of horizontal drilling and high-volume hydraulic fracturing in 2008.
