Cuomo: Fracking study done by ‘end of the year’


By: Jon Campbell

BUFFALO—Gov. Andrew Cuomo turned a few heads at the WNED-TV studio when he appeared to set a deadline on the state’s ongoing review of hydraulic fracturing, saying the state’s long-running analysis of the technique should be completed “by the end of the year.”

With Gov. Andrew Cuomo ceding 34 percent of the Democratic primary vote Tuesday to an upstart challenger with little name recognition and a shoestring budget, his campaign allies are out to put their spin on the results Wednesday.

For Teachout, the Thrill of Defeat

Early in the summer, after Zephyr Teachout announced what appeared to be a quixotic bid to challenge Andrew M. Cuomo in the Democratic primary for governor, I met her for breakfast with a childhood friend of hers and a wealthy ideological soul mate she had known for some time through leftist circles in Brooklyn. The candidate was looking for someone to hold a fund-raiser for her, and not having much luck.

ALBANY – Gov. Andrew Cuomo was greeted by a familiar sight as he entered the Presbyterian Church of Mount Kisco to cast his primary ballot Tuesday: anti-fracking protesters.

Cuomo says Fracking Decision May Take Even Longer


Governor Cuomo says he may not decide whether the state should go ahead with hydro fracking for natural gas until after the November 2014 elections.

Governor Cuomo, who previously said he’d decide on whether to okay fracking in New York before Election Day 2014, now says he wants to give his Health Commissioner, Dr. Nirav Shah, all the time he needs to complete an on going health review, that began over a year ago.

Health Dept.: Transparency to come when fracking review ends

ALBANY – New York’s health review of hydraulic fracturing will continue behind closed doors because science needs to be conducted in a “sacred place,” the state’s top health official said Monday.

State Health Commissioner Nirav Shah told reporters Monday that the science surrounding high-volume fracking continues to “evolve” and that scientific work must be conducted in private to maintain objectivity.

NY gov: Still no date to decide fracking for gas

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday said he would decide whether New York should allow hydraulic fracturing for natural gas by Election Day next year _ maybe.

Cuomo also cautioned that he doesn't want even that ballpark estimate to pressure his staff into a hasty recommendation to lift or make permanent a 2008 moratorium on the "fracking" drilling method to tap gas deep in shale deposits.
