Failures of State/Federal Government in Protecting Communities and Environment

  • 109th Congress Energy Policy Act 2005, Title III, Section 327 exempted the use of fracking fluids from Safe Drinking Water Act (SWDA).
  • The current 111th congress has let HR 2766 and S 1215 (bills that remove the fracking fluids exemption from the SDWA) stagnate in committee.  
  • NYS ECL Article 23, Title 3,  Section  23-0303 removed home rule from local communities.
  • NYS ECL Article 23, Title 9, Section 23-0901 specifies Compulsory Integration.  
  • NYS DEC issued dGEIS 30-Sep-09 containing several shortcomings/flaws that do not protect our environment.
