State Senator urges Cuomo to allow hydrofracking

Posted by Matt Ryan on


A large number of people in support of hydrofracking descended upon the Capitol in Albany to ask Governor Cuomo to go ahead and allow the controversial drilling for natural gas in New York.  State Senator Tom Libous, a Republican from the Southern Tier, was among the people who spoke to the supporters.  He told us afterward he hopes the governor makes a decision soon and he believes the Department of Health, which has been asked to review the health impacts of hydrofracking, has already made up their mind. Watch full interview here.
