A moratorium on high-volume, horizontal, hydraulic fracturing was passed in the New York State Assembly and delivered to the Senate. The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Robert Sweeney, passed the Assembly by a vote of 89 to 34. If passed in the Senate, the bill, A.5424-b, would ban the drilling practice for three years from the day it is signed, according to the Legislative Gazette.
