Lifton's Remarks on Local Fracking Bans
December 19th, 2011

Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton was quoted in Sarah Crean’s article on the efforts of communities around the state to ban hydraulic fracturing. She was quoted saying: We have a very strong tradition of home rule in New York State. Its in our state constitution that locals have the power to regulate. If it (home rule) applies to gravel mining, it also applies to gas.

Lifton however says that she was misquoted and what she really said was:

We have a very strong tradition of home rule in New York State. Its in our state constitution that locals have the power to restrict and ban outright. If it (home rule) applies to gravel mining, it also applies to gas.
