Activists Write Governor Cuomo on Health Impact Study


Anti-fracking activists continue to barrage Governor Cuomo with calls for a health impact study of the drilling process.

More than a thousand letters requesting the study have been sent within the last week, according to Walter Hang of Toxics Targeting. He believes that such letters are the main reason that there are no frack shale wells in New York.

"They demonstrate an intimate knowledge of the bureaucracy of New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.They reflect a very powerful understanding of the politics of New York State. And combined with your efforts to educate New Yorkers about what's at stake, that's what's held up fracking in New York," said President of Toxics Targeting, Walter Hang.

Hang and Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan made their call Monday afternoon in front of Government Plaza in downtown Binghamton.
