Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania is hoping to capitalize on the fracking ban across the border in New York

05.20.16 | Bob Price

A meeting was held in Montrose yesterday to try and lure businesses away from the southern tier of New York and to the northern tier of the Keystone State.

Mike German relocated his business to Susquehanna County three years ago and says he's glad he made the switch.  
Others argue the slowdown in the fracking industry in Pennsylvania makes the meeting in Montrose a moot point.

Organizors of the relocation event are creating relocation packages to assist businesses in the southern tier who are serious about moving across the border into the northern tier.
