Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Lynne Peeples. I would sincerely hope Gov. Cuomo does the right thing and retains the moratorium. Read and noted.

It's going to be a nail-biter.

How pathetic to think that small victories, like the temporary ban, can so quickly be overturned.

The state health dept has said that it can not meet the 13 Feb deadline so the EIS is effectively dead. The 27 feb date is moot as the EIS had to be first reported out no later than today. The DEC Commish however is making noises of going ahead anyway and this will result in many legal actions should he be so foolish.
