Proposed Hydrofracking Law

State comptroller Tom Dinapoli has come up with a program that he would like to see passed into law, which would affect hydrofracking projects.

Comptroller Dinapoli wants the state to have a plan ready that would make cleanups happen faster if there was a natural gas drilling problem. The plan that would give the D.E.C. the power to take over drilling sites for immediate cleanup if there was a problem, require companies involved with hydrofracking to put up bonds to make sure cleanup was taken care of, and other safety measures, in case there was a hydrofracking accident.

Also, under the Dinapoli plan, if there was a hydrofracking incident, the property owner, as well as the driller, would be held responsible.
