Moratorium on Fracking
The New York State Assembly on Wednesday passed a two-year moratorium on fracking, effective until May 15, 2015. Of course, the State Senate must pass similar legislation in order for the moratorium to take effect. Nathan Mayberg has the story in today's Register-Star: "Assembly passes 2-year fracking ban." Our Assembly member, Didi Barrett, supported the ban and is quoted in the article as saying, "You can't go back once you destroy the water system."
