Cuomo Delays Past Election Day

Lose-Lose Decision On Fracking

ALBANY – Governor Cuomo won’t make a decision on fracking until after the November elections, one of a number of tough decisions he’s delaying past election day, according to an AP dispatch published in Newsday, LongIsland’s newspaper.

“A decision to allow fracking would delight many in the state’s economically distressed Southern Tier, but would upset environmentalists and others opposed to the drilling,” according to the report.  “Polls show New Yorkers are evenly split on the issue – meaning about half of the state will oppose whatever Cuomo does.”
