Press Conference About Fracking to be Held Today in NYC
A press conference will be held today in New York City. On the steps of City Hall in NYC, a coalition of elected officials, government groups, environmental advocates and New Yorkers will come together for a press conference to denounce the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC’s) secret and exclusive communications with gas and oil companies regarding fracking regulations. The coalition will call on Governor Cuomo and the DEC to withdraw the draft of their Environmental Impact Statement and initiate an independent review of fracking.
