Gaz update...#fracking

A small glimmer of hope for landowners in our idyllic little town. Thanks to dedicated people who have assembled all today's news...

Was going to post a bunch of updates,
Then today it all changed again...for the better
Yesterday's news, NY State governor Cuomo banned fracking in NY.
Immediately, I thought, half of Gaz pipeline will be under the NY side of 
Lake Champlain.  Some of the gaz is from fracking
Vermont banned too...I'm confused.  {That was the plan}
Now after a few hours, I thought,
But it's OK to frack somebody else's place,
Where lawyers are unemployed
And money is scarce as hen's teeth.


What follows is the latest news from the sorces below:

Governor:
Although I am pleased that the new leadership at Vermont Gas is taking the time to reevaluate the proposed projects, this further cost increase is very troubling. In the coming weeks my administration will be evaluating all of this new information and looking at these projects as a whole to ensure that they remain in the best interest of Vermont. Meanwhile, I expect Vermont Gas to also reevaluate its communications and negotiations with affected landowners to help improve relations. I trust those steps will continue. Peter Shumlin
