New York is finally getting it’s act together! The Manhattan Institute has stated that New York State had the distinction of losing the most state residents in the Nation, for the past two decades. New York has lost 1.6 million NY residents, the population equivalent of Buffalo, Rochester, White Plains and West Babylon combined. The latest poll taken states that the majority of New York State residents, now believe that gas drilling should be allowed in New York State. The coalitions in the Southern Tier can take some credit for getting the truth out about gas drilling. When the gas industry begins drilling in New York State, this two decade trend of population loss, will be reversed and tax revenue will be greatly increased for a State that desperately needs it.
