Statement on Governor Cuomo’s Ban on Fracking

The Manhattan Young Democrats applaud today’s decision by Governor Andrew Cuomo and Acting NYS Health Commissioner Howard Zucker to fully ban fracking in New York State. MYD is opposed to the dangerous practice of hydrofracking, understanding it poses a threat to our health and safety. We are proud our Democratic Governor took the right steps to keep New Yorkers safe and healthy. Here’s to a clean day and a cleaner future for New York!
