New York Will Probably Restart Review Process on Fracking

New York will probably miss a deadline to develop fracking regulations, requiring the state to begin all over again and delaying indefinitely a decision on whether to allow the natural-gas drilling, officials said.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration has until Nov. 29 to decide if it will allow hydraulic fracturing and to develop regulations. Missing the deadline would require the state to draft new rules and reopen a window for public comment.
