Statement from Congressman Chris Collins on Erie County Legislature’s Vote to Ban Fracking

Dec 12, 2013
Press Release

Today's vote by the Erie County Legislature to irresponsibly ban fracking ensures that Western New York will continue to wallow in the status quo while jobs flee our region for pro-growth areas that embrace new technologies and common-sense job policies.

By voting in favor of this ban today, county legislators have aligned themselves with President Obama and Governor Cuomo's fringe, anti-business interests that have sabotaged New York's economy and jobs for our citizens.
