NEW COALITION FORMS IN SUPPORT OF RESPONSIBLE NATURAL GAS DEVELOPMENT IN THE SOUTHERN TIER

Coalition Members Say Outside Interests Have Interfered With the Region’s Right to Determine its Own Economic FutureBinghamton, N.Y. – A new coalition representing   union workers, farmers, landowners and local businesses today called on state officials to respect the right of people in the Southern Tier to determine their own economic future.The new coalition – called Southern Tier Residents for Economic Independence – favors carefully regulated, responsible development of natural gas resources.Coalition members say that the Southern Tier – one of the most depressed regions in the nation over the last decade -- deserves the right to responsibly develop its natural resources.  More than 50 rural towns in the Southern Tier have passed resolutions in favor of responsible development of natural gas.“It’s outrageous that we can’t engage in what President Obama has called a boon to both the economy and the environment,” said Scott Colton, President of Carpenters Local 277.David Johnson, President of the Broome County Farm Bureau, said:  “There is no reason that natural gas drilling shouldn’t occur in rural areas of the Southern Tier.  For people outside our community to be so vehemently opposed isn’t right or fair.” “It’s wrong for outsiders to block our efforts to improve our economy. We’re the only state in the nation with developable resources that isn’t moving forward,” said Dan Fitzsimmons, President of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York. Lou Santoni, President and CEO of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce, said:  “The Southern Tier needs an economic catalyst and the technology involved with natural gas development has been proven successful in other states. In fact, just 14 miles away, across...

Maine gov seeks to get rid of wind energy goals

 As seems to be typical, the environmental zealots appear to sit in comfortable situations where money is no object. They do not care that they have and are driving the costs of energy way beyond the reach of the working poor and older folks on fixed income. Who cares that the price of energy  based on ineffective technology is two or three times more expensive than energy generated by conventional means and is also collecting millions in tax subsidy's. Lastly there is the serious matter of...

Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Touts New Air Pollution Rules For Oil And Gas Industry

This is what real leadership by a governor is about in Colorado and in the national arena real leaders address the issues to protect everyone rights. They do not pander to their limited constituency's, they serve the interest of the whole state body. This is also what the BEST law in the land really looks like, protecting but not smothering. Clearly this is not New York's hostile business environment pretending to protect everyone while pandering to a few wealthy self interested contributors...

Yes, Virginia, There Is a U.S. Manufacturing Boom

To us it is remarkable that the sitting governor of New York State would like an Ostrich put his head in a hole and believe his body and actions are not visible to others in the state or nation. This issue of landowner rights , jobs, economic revival and balance in government is not going to go away even if we treat the facts as if invisible. The issue is much bigger than a wannabe president who seems to believe that no one else in the nation is seeing his obvious lack of leadership and...

Why were casinos forced on the public while fracking, which would add real jobs, is stalled?

By Stephen Kimatian  on February 23, 2014 in Syracuse.comThe smarmy side of Albany politics once again reared its ugly head on the road to the casino referendum, which was approved on election day and paved the way for seven new casinos, four of them Upstate. As sure as con man Christian Bale in "American Hustle,'' the casino advocates knew they had an easy mark in the Albany politicians. The casino operators had spent tens of millions in lobbying over the last decades and now, in the...
