Fracking

Albany's latest fracking rally attracts hundreds of protestors

Hundreds of anti-fracking protestors gathered along the Hudson River in Albany on  Monday in anticipation of New York's upcoming decision on the controversial gas drilling process.

As the state finalizes its environmental review of fracking, both opponents and supporters are putting on the pressure. It's been reported that the state may allow fracking on a limited basis in some counties along the Southern Tier.

Monday's rally took aim at Governor Cuomo, as protestors appealed to him directly to put a stop to gas drilling.
