Following EPA Study, Collins Calls on Cuomo to Reverse Fracking Ban
U.S. Representative Chris Collins today released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report that found no evidence of fracking having a widespread impact on drinking water.
“I fully expect Governor Cuomo to reverse his previous decision to ban fracking which was based upon controversial scientific studies and made to appease far left environmentalists,” said Congressman Collins. “Hardworking New Yorkers deserve the job opportunities and economic growth fracking has clearly produced in other states, including neighboring Pennsylvania.”
The Environmental Protection Agency study, which can be read here, concluded there is no evidence hydraulic fracturing has had a “widespread, systemic impact on drinking water.”
