Council’s anti-hydrofracking vote brings ovation

Council’s anti-hydrofracking vote brings ovation by Mark Scheer, March 5, 2012, Niagara Gazette
City lawmakers received something on Monday that they don’t receive very often, if at all — not one, but two standing ovations. The first applause followed the council’s unanimous vote in favor of a new law that bans hydrofracking-related activities, including the treatment of so-called “fracking” waste, within city limits. The second came after the council agreed to send a letter to Gov. Andrew Cuomo asking him to impose a statewide moratorium on the controversial natural extraction process until more is known about its impact on public health and the environment.
