Hydrofracking Answer May Be Soon For Ny

01.31.13 | Sarah Harnisch

The end is in sight. We may have an answer soon on high volume hydrofracking in New York state. New York's Health Commissioner, Nirav Shah, broke his silence on the state's review of health impacts of high volume hydrofracking, telling lawmakers Wednesday he anticipates completing the analysis in quote "the next few weeks." The review has been going on since 2008, and this is the first answer on a timeline that we've gotten directly from the people responsible for the study. The study must be made public for 10 days before any decisions whether to allow fracking in New York will be made.
