NY DEC Extends Comment Period on New Regulations by 30 Days
Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin (Nov 4):
Debate on drilling rules extended by DEC
The New York Department of Environmental Conservation has caved to the anti-drillers who are screaming for more time to read the 800-page draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (dSGEIS)–the proposed new drilling regulations all drillers in New York would have to follow when drilling in the Marcellus Shale. So the DEC has added another 30 days to the “comment period” which is really nothing more than an extra 30 days for the anti-drillers to try and prevent drilling in New York. No worries, drilling is coming and they can’t stop it.
