IOGA Unhappy With Extension of Fracking Comment Period
November 30th, 2011
The Department of Environmental Conservation announced today that it is extending the public comment period on its fracking impact study by one month. The DEC is holding its final hearing on the study in the city today.
Environmental advocates were fairly pleased by the extension but the gas industry is not. The Independent Oil & Gas Association of New York issued this short statement:
“While today’s extension of the comment period may seem inconsequential to some, it is in fact a continuation of the existing four-year ban on economic opportunity for Upstate New York.”By David King on November 30, 2011, 4:29 pm
