Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) today applauded Governor Cuomo’s decision to ban fracking in New York State.

“I applaud Governor Cuomo’s decision to ban fracking in New York State. The Governor based his decision on the science – not the demands of oil and gas drillers looking for a quick buck. The public health risks posed by contamination of our air, land and water are too great to allow high-volume, horizontal fracking in our beautiful state.”
