Schneiderman a fracking foe who might have to defend it
|When Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was on the campaign trail last year, he released an environmental agenda with seven major initiatives he intended to take up in office.|
In red type, the document listed his priority when it comes to protecting New York's land, air and water: "Sue to Prohibit Hydrofracking."
"He will make sure that no drilling took place until it was deemed to be safe and regulated by the DEC (state Department of Environmental Conservation) and EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency)," the document reads, citing his "proven record of fighting against this new and unproven technology."
Fast forward to 2011, and Schneiderman now will likely face the task of defending a set of regulations proposed by the DEC that would allow for high-volume hydraulic fracturing, with a bevy of restrictions, to move forward in New York.
