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!

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.

Peter Hosey elected to serve on State Bar Association Council of Oil, Gas and Energy Resources Law Section.

080305gasheads1sdc.JPGBrad Gill, executive director of the Independent Oil & Gas Association of New York.The series of anti-drilling letters that ran April 21 demonstrate the inability or unwillingness of some people to educate themselves on the facts regarding natural gas exploration.

First, to call an advertisement by the American Petroleum Institute “propaganda,” is laughable in light of the misinformation being fed to these same fact-starved people by environmental groups who create this frenzy of fear and then ask for your donations to help make it go away.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. economy will lose $2.4 trillion over the next two decades if the federal government does not allow oil and natural gas drilling in restricted onshore lands and in offshore areas previously closed to energy companies, according to a new study released on Monday.

Letter #1

As a landowner in the town of xx, I have become increasingly frustrated by those who are opposed to the possibility of increased exploration in this region of the state. While natural gas exploration has been conducted safely in New York for decades, the public has repeatedly been exposed to misinformation and gross exaggerations by environmental extremists whose accusations are nothing more than scare tactics.

There is a job description attached to this post and this is to show you how important this job really is to us and all the people in this county.
