Rochester Residents Travel to Albany to Thank Governor For Fracking Ban

- Rochester, NY (WROC)-  Rochester residents treked to the state capital today, all to thank Governor Cuomo for his new ban on fracking.  They are rallying outside the State of the State address along thousands of other New Yorkers.  They believe fracking, the deep drilling process of extracting natural gas from rocks, is toxic to the environment.  Although they are thrilled with Cuomo's decision, they still have other issues to take up with the governor.

We're going to Albany to urge Governor Cuomo from storing natural gas from the salt taverns on Seneca Lake," said Harry Davis of Rochester.

It's such a huge concern what we're doing to the environment and its up to the people to be aware and help each other and influence our politicians because there is so much money being poured into the political system by the corporations.  This is unusual.  You cant fix the environment once it's ruined."

The rally will coincide with the State of the State address outside the state capitol.
