"No Timetable" for Fracking Decision in New York

New York State officials said on May 1, 2013 that there is “no timetable on a decision” to lift the state moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.  The Commissioner of the New York Department of Health said that new information obtained during a recent meeting with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will be included in the state’s public health review of hydraulic fracturing.  A February 12, 2013 press release from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation previously indicated that the public health review would be complete “in a few weeks.”
