DFNYC applauds ban on hydrofracking in New York

Democracy for New York City (DFNYC) applauds Governor Cuomo for approving a ban on hydrofracking in New York State.  It has been clear for some time that this method of natural gas extraction poses significant health and environmental risks and should be banned.  DFNYC is proud to have been a member of the New Yorkers Against Fracking (NYAF) coalition, and we will continue to speak out on what is one of the great environmental issues of our time.
 
Today's decision is a historic moment for our state and we applaud the leaders of NYAF, Sane Energy, United for Action and other groups who worked so hard to make this happen.
 
Thank you governor for doing the right thing
