The head of the Independent Oil and Gas Association has written a letter to governor Cuomo, expressing dismay at the latest step in the over four year fracking review process. The Administration has appointed three outside experts to review health data on possible impacts of fracking before a years-long environmental review process can be finished.
In a letter, the drillers who have ben cooperating with the review, say their “trust in government is exhausted.”
IOGA President Brad Gill writes in the letter that “the unnecessary delay in concluding this rulemaking process is a serious problem for the upstate economy”.
“The upstate economy is dying,” says IOGA spokesman Jim Smith. “This is on the of things that can save New York.”
The drillers say they wonder what their “future” is in New York, and ask governor Cuomo for an encouraging signal.
Environmental groups support the idea of a health review, though they say they wish they were given more details.
