ITHACA-- The future of Marcellus Shale hydraulic fracturing in New York faces more push-back from local politicians. Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) was in Ithaca Wednesday to sign a letter asking Gov. Paterson to withdraw the draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) the state Department of Environmental Conservation released last year. Walter Hang, president of Toxics Targeting, wrote the letter last year. Former congressman Eric Massa and Rep. Mike Arcuri's names are also on that petition.

KEYWORDS: economy; energyindependence; hydrofracking
Maurice Hinchey just sealed his fate with this. He will lose on Tuesday and I am ecstatic.

Maurice just loves buying oil from Hugo Chavez I guess.

Because he is an ultra left lunatic. Period. He just lost the votes of ALL of the landowners and maybe even our Democrat County Exec who was banking on gas $$ to help taxpayers out! Besides, NYSEG our utility, is one of the most expensive in the US!
