New York State codifies fracking ban in budget
The New York State legislature permanently banned fracking in its Fiscal Year 2021 Budget on April 2 — one of several budget items that prioritize the health and future of New York's people and environment. This measure comes five years after Governor Andrew Cuomo initially banned fracking in New York State, which, while monumental, was accomplished through executive action, leaving it vulnerable to jettison by future governors. Codifying the ban makes it permanent, protecting generations to come.
