Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,
 
About 160 landowners and Natural Gas supporters enjoyed each other’s company on a sunny Tuesday evening in Owego’s beautiful Hickories Park. They gathered to hear Gubernatorial Candidate Rob Astorino and Lt. Governor Candidate Chemung County Sheriff Chris Moss describe why they support Natural Gas development and the benefits it will bring to our families, communities and state. According to Astorino, Binghamton is dead last on a list of 363 cities around the nation evaluated for their economic potential over the next ten years (http://wnbf.com/binghamton-last-in-projected-u-s-economic-growth/).  He sees NG development as just one way to make the southern tier more prosperous. It was also refreshing to hear Moss give credit to Ashur Terwilliger of the Chemung County Farm Bureau for educating him on the benefits and importance of NG development for the farmers and residents of the Southern Tier. Overall it’s very obvious that Astorino and Moss understand the importance of safe and responsible NG development and the rights of NYers regarding NG and a variety of other issues like fire am ownership, education, and ethical...

The Westchester County executive has a shot against incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

 

 

All the elements are there for an Astorino victory.

Most of the pundits who follow national politics have already made up their minds about what’s going on in New York. They see the possibility of a GOP pickup of two or even three seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, especially if President Barack Obama’s job approval number is, as it...

By ED MORSE  July 09, 2014 in Politico Magazine

The recent debate over sending U.S. oil abroad misses the point: The United States is already a budding export powerhouse.

The United States is once again the top oil producer in the world, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Russia. This year, America is on pace to pump out an average of 12 million barrels a day of crude oil plus gas liquids, an all-time record level. Add in biofuels and volumetric gains from refining, and the United States is...

The oil industry’s largest lobbying group began a new effort to ease public fears about hydraulic fracturing after a legal setback in New York state and a voter push in Colorado to ban the drilling practice.

The American Petroleum Institute, a Washington-based group that includes Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) and Chevron Corp. (CVX), released guidelines for improving community relations as “fracking” extends to more towns, raising concerns about...

The Energy Collective July 5th 2014

Whether you’re in Loveland, Denver or even the nation’s capital, the events of the past two weeks have proved once more that Coloradans from across the political spectrum support homegrown energy production and all the benefits that go with it. In fact, opponents of domestic energy production who are teaming up with national groups to make Colorado “ground zero” in their campaign to shut down the state’s oil and natural gas industry have a much higher mountain to climb than...

Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,

As you know the Democratic Assembly and Governor Cuomo are doing all they can to delay or ban Natural Gas development. What you may not know is that the Senate, controlled by 29 Republicans in a coalition with 5 Democrats who formed the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC), has been our line of defense against the attempts to ban NG development and similar adverse legislation. This situation has made our progress slow, but thanks to the Senate we have...

Last winter, NY homeowners using propane paid $100 Million more in propane costs because local dealers had to look as far away as Washington State to find enough propane supply. That's because New York’s propane storage infrastructure is in adequate.
 
Fortunately, there is a proposed propane storage facility in the Finger Lakes that is shovel ready and can help prevent future propane shortages and price spikes. This project also means new jobs and...
