CALL CUOMO NOW! TELL HIM “COMPLETE THE FRACKING HEALTH REVIEW BEFORE WRITNG RULES AND REGULATIONS”
In Albany: (518) 474-8390 In New York City: (212) 681-4580
November 28, 2012 Yesterday Governor Cuomo indicated that New York State will file for a 90 day extension in order to buy time to complete fracking regulations before a legal deadline expires on November 29th. This extension gives the state until the end of February to publish regulations without having to hold public hearings or face the increased scrutiny that those hearings would provide.
It’s irresponsible for the governor to set a deadline for promulgating regulations before the ongoing review of public health impacts is complete. To make matters worse, it appears that the DEC is preparing to issuing fracking rules (these are different than the regulations) within a matter of days or hours – also before the health review is finished, before the SGEIS is published, and before regulations are in place. These rash decisions can only be interpreted one way – Cuomo intends to fast track fracking without regard for the health or safety of New Yorkers.
For a better understanding of this confusing, and disheartening, situation, read NRDC’s Senior Attorney Kate Sinding’s excellent blog on this subject.
What can you do to prevent fracking?
“FRIEND GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO”
The Governor may ignore our letters, phone calls, emails and faxes, so let’s try another approach: let’s friend him on Facebook – and turn his homepage into one of the biggest online anti-fracking sites in the country!
