The first bill of the season to be voted on, as pertains to fracking, is the Hazardous Waste Bill, A7013.  The bill look-up website has note yet been updated with this year’s vote, which included “yeas” from all Democrats present and 6 Republicans, too.  30 Republicans voted against it– down a bit from the 35 that voted against it last year.

This bill is important whether fracking ever begins in New York State or not, as hazardous waste from other states is trucked into New York.  Perhaps there will also be some movement in the Senate.
