New York State’s top environmental official announced Thursday that he had asked the state health commissioner to assess the potential health impact from allowing high-volume hydraulic fracturing in New York State. The environmental commissioner, Joe Martens , said he was rejecting requests from various groups for an independent health study. “While the review will be informed by outside perspectives on the science of hydrofracking, the decision-making will remain a governmental responsibility,” he said. Only when the health review is completed will a final decision on allowing the controversial gas drilling process be made, he added. Fracking involves pumping vast amounts of water laced with chemicals into underground shale deposits under high pressure to release natural gas. 11:49 p.m. | Updated Mireya Navarro’s article is here .
