When fracking came along, struggling farmers, with their vast amounts of land, had a perfect opportunity to change things and get some much needed income. Essentially saving their farms from bankruptcy.

The PennEast Pipeline project continues to progress through the approval process in a timely fashion in PA while NY keeps playing the fool.
