I trust that you have been well since we last communicated. I write to bring you up to date about my activities and to request your immediate assistance with a Legislator sign-on letter to Governor Cuomo.
Hallelujah: Final Fracking Decision Delayed Yet Again
You will recall that Governor Cuomo suddenly declared on 2/8/12 that a "final decision" would be made "in a couple of months" about permitting shale gas fracking in New York. His emphatic statement caused elation among pro-frackers and despair among environmentalists. It looked like the bitter end was near.
I am thrilled to report that the Governor's decision has reportedly been further delayed by the Revised Draft SGEIS proceeding. With your on-going assistance, NEW YORK'S SHALE GAS FRACKING MORATORIUM is still holding rock-steady against seemingly insurmountable odds
The bottom line is that until DEC fulfills the onerous requirements of the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR) as well as Executive Order No. 41, Governor Cuomo will have an extremely hard time adopting a Final SGEIS that permits shale gas fracking in New York.
