NY Democrats: Keep Fracking Waste Out of State

Democratic senators in New York have introduced legislation to ban fracking waste from the state.

They introduced four bills today that would keep the waste from being shipped into the state for treatment or disposal; eliminate the waste from being used to melt ice off of roads; and bar treatment facilities and landfills from accepting the byproduct.

The state health department is currently reviewing whether fracking should be allowed in the state.
