NY Senate Democrats Propose Fracking Moratorium

     ALBANY (WENY) -- Democratic New York state senators are calling for a two year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.
      The Senate Democratic Conference says it would give more time to assess the potential impacts of fracking,and finish a comprehensive health study. You may recall, the democrat-led Assembly approved a two-year moratorium on fracking back in March.
     The moratorium would be in effect until May 15, 2015.
