Over 100 callers from CNY Today - Thanks for Your Great Work

103 callers registered with CNY that they called the Senators on the Encon committee to try to defeat the moratorium bill sponsored by Senator Thompson.  We do not yet know the results of the Encon meeting today.  If this bill is defeated in committee, it is largely due to the special action taken by our committee members.  
Thanks for all your work!

OPPOSITION’S ATTEMPT TO SNEAK A BILL THROUGH: NYS Senator Antoine Thompson has just introduced a bill to the NYS Encon Committee, which he chairs, that would ban any hydraulic fracturing activity in NYS for one year – which is certain to be followed up by subsequent moratoriums in future years. THIS BILL HAS THE SAME LONG-TERM AGENDA AS THE OTHERS AND IS NOT A COMPROMISE!!! If this passes, we can forget about leasing for years to come and we can be certain that any gas company who might be waiting for the DEC to release the SGEIS will give up & head elsewhere.

Media coverage of the Albany rally

Letter from Brian Conover: SOS - Rally in Albany sponsored by the JLC

Dear Coalition Friend:

We know that your time is very important so we would not want to ask too much of you. However, this Wednesday brings a critical event that desperately needs your full support. The Joint Landowner's Coalition of New York is hosting a rally in Albany on Wednesday, June 9th. Buses will be leaving from various locations throughout the Southerntier and upstate NY. If we do not have a tremendous showing of support for this rally, this very well may be the end of our gas drilling prospects for many years to come.

Summer Rally - June 9th

Updated!  Urgent!
This is our last chance before Albany's summer recess and fall ELECTIONS to show our leaders that NYers support gas!

Environmental, gas groups spar over Marcellus Shale drilling


Elmira Star Gazette

ALBANY -- Environmentalists descended on the Capitol this week to push a bill that would prohibit issuing natural-gas-drilling permits in New York's Marcellus Shale until a federal study is complete, but a group of drilling advocates called the proposal "unnecessary." 

Natural-gas companies and some landowners are eager to begin drilling in the Marcellus Shale formation, which stretches across many of the northeastern states and is rich with natural gas. But some are worried about the potential impact of using hydraulic fracturing, or hydro-fracking, to help extract the gas.

There are 194,500 acres represented in the Coalition as of 8/18/2010. The latest gas offers in New York State are $3000/acre with 20% royalties.
