The people of New York State are very lucky to have a government that takes no risks - with anything....even if it means that the benefits of processes like fracking will go to other states. Obviously, we're much smarter than they are! Actually, the people of NYS DO benefit from misguided fracking policies in other states - The meltdown in crude oil prices and gasoline were caused by fracking. So, we get better gas prices, with no risk. We win!

Once again, the answer to every problem is an increase in taxes. What happened to the money we already paid? Cut spending first.

The oil that would be transported by the Keystone pipeline is traveling through our countryside now - by train and by truck, both of which pose far greater risk to our environment than transportation by pipeline. The risk of a spill is far greater, and this doesn't even begin to take into account the carbon emissions from diesel burning trucks and trains. So, Jan Walz arguments against the pipeline are very weak. I would also assume that she has no pension, mutual funds, or other investments in "huge, uncaring corporations" . These would clearly go against her belief that corporate America is evil (the same evil corporations that refuse to pay a living wage).

Why is the solution to every issue in NYS a new tax? I hope the last person to leave has the sense to turn off the lights.

This is typical of NYS legislators - it's like making changes to the curtains on the Titanic. Propose something that matters, and will make a difference!

.....and the police wonder why they get no respect. This idiot needs to be charged, and his partner does too. In addition to criminal charges, they need to face a civil suit. Reprehensible.

"Natural gas pipelines, pumping facilities and massive storage sites are all being forced on New Yorkers against their will". This statement is not universally accurate; there are many NY residents that support these energy infrastructure projects. Moreover, nothing is being forced on us against our will. For purely political reasons, the Governor doesn't appear to have the courage to make any decisions on fracking, or other energy infrastructure projects - for or against.

Of course, it's obvious (to anyone that can't think) that the Gov is not delaying these decisions for political reasons.
