It’s Good News All The Way Around For Gas Drilling

Since our last newsletter, there has been positive news for those who desire gas drilling to ramp up in New York.  First of all, your votes greatly influenced some critical elections in our state.  Because of your voting voice we will have more elected officials in New York that are willing to represent landowners rights and interests than in previous years.  Beyond the elections of November, we want to highlight a few positive developments that you will want to know about – you can read about them below. 

Thanks for partnering with the Central New York Landowner’s Coalition.  From everyone on the coalition committee, have a very Merry Christmas and enjoyable holidays!

At the same time liberal Upstate New York Rep. Maurice Hinchey, 71, championed strict control over gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale, his wife lobbied for a Texas-based landmen association whose members represent gas drillers securing leases from New York property owners.
