Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,
Attached below are statements from DEC Commissioner Martens and Department of Health Commissioner Shah. Commissioner Shah says he still needs a few weeks to complete the health review. DEC says if DOH finds that the SGEIS adequately addresses health concerns, the SGEIS can be adopted and permits issued 10 days later.
We are extremely disappointed that after 4 1/2 years, the state failed to meet another deadline. The JLCNY will be monitoring these issues on a daily basis and will continue to evaluate our plans to commence a lawsuit against the state.
