My Thoughts On The Cuomo Administration’s Decision To Ban Natural Gas Fracking In New York State

Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb (R,C,I-Canandaigua) today issued the following statement on the Cuomo Administration’s decision to ban hydraulic fracturing for natural gas in New York State.
“The Cuomo Administration’s decision to ban hydraulic fracturing will certainly generate strong reactions on both sides of the issue. Although 35 states have created jobs and revenue from natural gas fracking, the Cuomo Administration chose not to explore this industry. So, what now?
Upstate New York desperately needs sustainable, job-creating businesses and new industries. With natural gas fracking now taken off the table, what is the solution? What are the options? Facilitating true economic recovery in upstate communities must be among our highest priorities in the upcoming budget discussions and legislative session – especially in light of today’s announcement. Our economic well-being should not depend on the success of blackjack tables and slot machines.”
