Cuomo: No Decision Yet On Hydrofracking

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said today that there’s no new time schedule on when the state Department of Environmental Conservation would finish its review of hydrofracking—which the agency has been reviewing for nearly four years without resolution.

“I have had no recent updates one way or the other in terms of time,” Cuomo said today on Fred Dicker’s radio show.

An Associated Press story today suggested that Cuomo dogged the hard questions on hydrofracking and other issues during a live online chat in September.

In response, Cuomo said, “I think it’s a silly point.”

Cuomo said his office received hundreds of questions during the hourlong chat, including hundreds from people on hydrofracking.

“I answered the hydrofracking question the same way I’ve answered it 100 times before,” Cuomo said. “We’re in the middle of the process. There’s nothing new. DEC is doing the review.”
