Roundtable on Marcellus Shale

New York State Senator Antoine Thompson, who represents parts of Erie and Niagara counties, is holding a roundtable to get input and feedback from the public on gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale formation.

The hearing will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. November 10 at the State Capitol building in Albany.

“We must sensibly examine the issues surrounding gas drilling in Marcellus Shale and the impact that it might have on New York’s economy and environment before making a determination. This roundtable will identify ways of accomplishing these tasks,” Thompson said in a news release announcing the roundtable..

The roundtable is open to the public to both attend and participate. Depending on the number of people wishing to participate, some may be asked to provide written testimony, rather than participate in person.

Those wishing to participate are asked to contact Rashied McDuffie, Director of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee at (518) 455-3371 or
