204,000 Comments Later

As expected, the heat is turning up in the struggle to stop HVHF from taking over NY State.  Thanks to the grassroots movement, over 204,000 comments were delivered to Albany DEC on Jan 11.  Many hours of work, writing, organizing, educating, speaking, rallies turned out to be a very successful 30 days of public comment period.  The statewide coalition organization New Yorkers Against Fracking, Food and Water Watch, Eco Watch, Working Families Party and so many more get a great big applause!  Thank you to every single group and person who participated! 

So now what?  The DEC must review these concerns as they try to put some kind of finalization on the SGEIS and develop final regulations for consideration.  The process will continue as so will the controversy. 

Be sure to stay tuned to the actions of attorneys Helen and David Slottje and the lawsuit against the DEC.  We are in for some very interesting weeks ahead!
