ALBANY – Gov. Andrew Cuomo told a Capitol area radio talk show host Friday afternoon that the final version of the state’s natural gas well permitting document will be completed soon.
WGDJ (1300-AM) Radio host Fred Dicker asked the Governor about the state’s ongoing review of high-volume hydraulic fracturing, and when it may wrap up.
“We don’t have a hard date, but it will be done shortly,” said Cuomo.
Less than a week prior, a New York Department of Environmental Conservation told a reporter for The New York Times that the Governor was pushing a plan that would permit hydraulic fracturing in the deepest part of the gas-rich Marcellus Shale where municipalities are in favor of it. The permitting zone would include Chenango County.
