Governor Cuomo’s Fracking Decision Eliminates Job Opportunities and Crushes Economic Growth

Dec 17, 2014
Press Release

Congressman Chris Collins today released the following statement on Governor Cuomo’s decision to ban fracking.

“Governor Cuomo has just denied the people of New York a tremendous economic opportunity in order to appease far left environmentalists for his own political gain,” said Congressman Collins. “The Governor continues to hide behind Albany bureaucrats and controversial scientific studies to stand against hardworking New Yorkers who deserve the job opportunities and economic growth fracking has clearly produced in other states, including neighboring Pennsylvania.  This is a sad day for the future of the economy in Upstate New York.”
