NY Propane Fracking Application Gets Response

…. 

NY DEC needs more information on a permit application for propane fracking; calling the application incomplete on what they say is a “unique technology.”

It only took nine months, but the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC), which moves like a glacier, has finally responded to a request by a group of farmers in Tioga County, NY to use propane fracking technology (also known as LPG fracturing or “liquefied petroleum gas”) on a shale well. Last July a group of landowners flying under the name of The Snyder Farm Group (five families make up the group) contracted with Tioga Energy Partners (based in Texas) to drill a fracked Utica Shale well, and follow it up with drilling a fracked Marcellus Shale well, using liquefied petroleum gas (LPG or propane) and sand (see NY Landowners File to Frack Horizontal Well w/Waterless Tech and NY Heroes: More Details on NY Propane Fracking Proposal).

Andrew Cuomo: New York’s Gutless Governor

Constitution Pipeline - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

The cynical politics of Andrew Cuomo involve assuming power for the purpose of evading responsibility and patronizing big green radicals.

Progress on the $700 million Constitution Pipeline teeters on the mating habits of the Northern long-eared bat and the political machinations of Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Four-Hundred Strong Rally for Constitution Pipeline

Upstate New Yorkers turned out en masse Saturday to tell Governor Cuomo it’s time to cut out the crap and approve the Constitution Pipeline, NOW!

The support for the Constitution Pipeline and Williams I saw in my hometown of Afton, New York on Saturday was beyond belief. There was a rally and some 400 people packed the Afton River Club to sign letters and to speak in support of the project on behalf of themselves, their friends, their families and their neighbors. Williams should feel very confident is has ample support, not only from landowners, but also from several local elected officials and numerous labor union members. The officials, union members and other individuals who came out to speak up in favor of the Constitution Pipeline was so encouraging and sent a very loud message to Governor Cuomo, who’s playing a stupid bureaucratic game with this vital project.

We Have the Numbers, So Approve the Constitution Pipeline!

Though politics shouldn’t be the criteria, support for the Constitution Pipeline has now been amply demonstrated and it’s time Cuomo approved this project!

“Where are your numbers?”

This was a question Andrew Cuomo asked a Joint Landowners  Coalition (JLCNY) representative in 2011.  Cuomo knew then the antis’ claims were bogus, that upstate development depended on cheap energy, and NYC was switching to gas to meet EPA air quality standards.

The Plight of the Southern Tier: A Leadership Fail

Dr. Michael Morrongiello
Psychologist and Steuben County Landowner

…. 
….

The plight of the Southern Tier – a failing economy with no end in sight – is directly attributable to a governing philosophy of handouts before leadership.

An Elmira Star-Gazette editorial on August 15th accurately described the plight of upstate New York: lagging economic growth, little job creation, people leaving the state in droves. The Editorial Board cited State Comptroller DiNapoli’s report which said “job growth was uneven across the state.” The Southern Tier actually lost jobs. There’s nothing uneven about it; the area is flatlining. After a great start the editorial fizzled out, failing to name the cause of upstate’s decline nor any real solutions – state leadership that has put the Southern Tier and much of Upstate New York at the mercy of downstate special interests.

Listen Up Governor Cuomo: Upstate Lives Matter

….
…. 

Upstate lives matter: This is what Bryant La Tourette recently told his town board. He gave a presentation on then and now as it pertains to their economy.

Just four years ago our local hardware store had its best year, in the face of many mom and pops shutting down. Another company that installed all types of truck accessories, dump truck bodies, snow plows etc. also had a great year in sales. A metal fabricating company located in our town had a great year as well. Even my printing business, for the first time in 4 years, showed an uptick.

One of our large farms was in the process of negotiating a lease with a well. This would save the farm and catch up on back taxes. Other farms were selling hay. Hay prices went up due to demand. Construction companies and contractors were hiring. One of our local eateries had added a motel and had plans drawn up to expand.

Remove Our Shackles Governor Cuomo!

secedeSandra Davis
Delaware County, New York Resident

The decision to ban fracking by Governor Cuomo has hurt the families in the southern tier who are just trying to make a living. One landowner Sandra Davis questions “Why are we still New Yorkers?”

Good Afternoon I’m Sandra Davis! I am the secretary for the Deposit Gas Group, a member of Landowner Advocates of New York, Women’s Energy Leadership Coalition and recently I joined Divide New York State Caucus as the county leader for Delaware and Otsego County.

I grew up 15 miles from here on a dairy farm in Deposit. I chose to move back to New York 13 years ago to plant my roots and now I am raising my family here. As an American I feel that it is my right and my obligation to defend our property rights, gun rights and as a mother of three boys I feel the need to fight common core.

What It Would Mean To Me to Secede From New York

secedeSandra Davis
Delaware County, New York Resident

This is a letter written by Sandra Davis on July 4th to her local legislators stating her reasons she wants to secede from New York to Pennsylvania.

Today is Independence Day, the day our great nation became free to govern itself, by the people for the people…or so we think!

My name is Sandra Davis. I have been a resident of New York State pretty much all my life. I was born here, I grew up on a dairy farm in Delaware county and I currently reside five miles from my family’s farm. It was my choice to start a family here, but I do not want to continue to raise my children here.

The area that I love and call home has been condemned to poverty by Albany and the City of New York. If only I did not have to physically leave my home, I could just secede to Pennsylvania, which at this point has so much more to offer my family. Of course I am not arriving empty handed we have 55 acres with mineral rights.

A Tale of Two Counties: The Fracking Difference

Dr. Michael Morrongiello
Psychologist and Steuben County Landowner

 

The recent history of two counties, one in New York State and the other in Pennsylvania, tells us everything about fracking and the fracking difference.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the spring of hope in Bradford County, PA; it was the winter of despair in Steuben County, NY. These two beautiful, mostly rural counties, separated by only 21 miles, are economically worlds apart.

Taxes, regulations and the ban on gas development are killing Steuben County. A family of four would save $1,389 in yearly taxes by moving to Pennsylvania. Gas development has been an economic game-changer for Bradford County.
