DEC: New Gas Drilling Regulations by June


Acting head of the Department of Environmental Conservation, Joe Martens, expects his Agency to complete its updated rules for gas drilling in June.
At a legislative hearing on Tuesday, he said the state needs to proceed cautiously with hydraulic fracturing, but, he added, the regulations should not wait for a federal EPA study that may take two years.
Gas drilling permits in the Marcellus Shale have been on hold since 2008.
