Liz in the Daily News: “The evidence is in, so ban fracking”

On Monday, the Daily News published an op-ed from Liz on fracking! The conclusion:

New York finds itself at a crossroads. We know that, with the technology and engineering methods currently in use, fracking is inherently dangerous and would result in irreversible harm to New Yorkers; health, our natural resources and our billion-dollar agricultural industry.

Yet the Cuomo administration is still officially reviewing how fracking impacts people’s health.

The state’s highest court recently upheld the rights of cities and towns to ban fracking within their borders. This is a step in the right direction, but pollutants caused by fracking will not conform to municipal boundaries.

As elected officials, it is our job to weigh the facts and science, and then act to protect New Yorkers. It is time for both houses of the state Legislature to pass a bill banning fracking — and for Gov. Cuomo to sign it.

Read the whole op-ed at the Daily News website.

Liz issued the following statement upon Gov. Cuomo’s signature of legislation she and Assembly Health Chair Richard Gottfried passed to increase screening, diagnosis, treatment, and awareness of maternal depression disorders (S.7234B):

“Many new parents and families aren’t aware of just how common maternal depression is, and too often cases go untreated with new mothers and families needlessly suffering,” said Senator Liz Krueger. “This bill will spur greater awareness, early detection, and treatment of maternal depression. Governor Cuomo has my deepest thanks for signing this important legislation today.”
