Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon among New Yorkers to Announce Record Number of Public Comments on Cuomo Administration’s Proposed Fracking Rules as 30-day Comment Period Set to End

Coalition of state’s residents opposed to fracking will make announcement, transport boxes of comments to DEC for submission

WHAT:                  Press conference and delivery of public comments on state’s proposed fracking regulations

WHEN:                  Friday, January 11 at 12 noon

WHERE:                Legislative Office Building, Room 711-A, Albany, NY

WHO:                    New Yorkers Against Fracking
                                Yoko Ono & Sean Lennon, Artists Against Fracking
                                Biologist Sandra Steingraber, PhD, Concerned Health Professionals of NY

VISUALS:             Dozens of boxes filled with public comments from New Yorkers on fracking regulations

WHY:                     New Yorkers have been consistently expressing their opposition to fracking to Governor Cuomo, including thousands who came to the Capitol for a demonstration before his State of the State address on Wednesday. The governor is weighing whether or not to allow fracking in New York and Friday marks the last day of the 30-day comment period on the Cuomo administration’s draft regulations. Among the millions of New Yorkers opposed to fracking, those submitting comments have done so under protest because they do not believe any regulations can prevent the dangers the process poses, and disagree with the Cuomo administration’s decision to release draft fracking regulations before its own health review has been completed and made public.
