The pro gas drilling rally to Albany has been put off for awhile, JLC felt that resources needed to be directed to other matters. Kenny and I attended the JLC meeting last night in Binghamton. Stu Gruskin, former Executive Deputy Commissioner of DEC, spoke about the time table of when DEC will begin issuing drilling permits. Commissioner Gruskin hopes a year from now gas drilling permits will begin. The process will be hindered or advanced by how the Governor values this issue going forward. Latest polls show the residents of the state evenly divided on this issue, with 20 percent undecided. All Coalitions in the state need to step-up their efforts to make sure the Governor and the undecided are on our side. Until next time. Neil
