Large coalition asks Legislature to ban fracking waste in New York
from The Legislative Gazette
On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, a coalition of 129 environmental, health and community groups issued a letter to the New York State Senate and Assembly requesting they close a loophole in state regulations that exempts certain oil and gas waste from being regulated as hazardous waste. Although New York has banned the act of high-volume hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the state still allows fracking waste from Pennsylvania to be brought to New York for disposal and other uses.
