The contract negotiated between Gov. Cuomo & Council 82 is creating a stir all across NYS. Therefore, the Empire Page interrupted our poll question on hydrofracking to ask you to grade the Council 82 agreement. If you don’t know the details of the agreement, then read up on it — there are several stories in today’s Empire Page report.
Our poll on where people stand on hydrofracking — the technology used to extract oil from shale — was interesting. More than half the people who voted (53%) are in favor of employing it now; just under a quarter (24%) say they need more facts while one in five (20%) oppose it “unalterably”. I used the word “inalterably” purposely in hopes that people knew they were saying they won’t change their minds under any circumstances.
