Sen. Gillibrand Trying to Slow Down Drilling in New York
Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin (Oct 15):
Gillibrand urges N.Y. extend comment period on gas drill rules
More delay tactics from the Democrats. Enough already! From the article:
U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, on Thursday urged New York to extend the public comment period on proposed regulations governing development of the gas-rich Marcellus Shale.
New York state released its environmental impact statement Sept. 30 and scheduled a series of public meetings, beginning on Oct. 28 . The state provided a 60-day period for public comment; Gillibrand, D-N.Y., recommended a 90-day public comment period, to Dec. 30.
