New York: Decision delayed on high-volume fracturing

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration faces a delay in deciding whether to allow high-volume hydraulic fracturing because the state Department of Health said it needed more time to review the practice.

The health department's decision to take more time to review a state environmental impact statement on fracing means a delay for the state Department of Environmental Conservation, which had tentatively planned on releasing an extensive environmental review Feb. 13.

That review has to be released and available for public comment for at least 10 days before the state can proceed on any decision.
