Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

TOP Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

"President Trump's move to allow new offshore oil and gas drilling on nearly all previously off-limit coastal waters represents yet another federal assault on our environment and our future. Instead of taking action to confront climate change and safeguard our natural resources, the administration is abdicating its responsibility to protect our future. 

"While Washington paves the way for big oil and the gas industry to hurt our environment, New York is investing in the clean energy jobs of tomorrow and stepping up for our planet, our economy and our children. From banning fracking to protecting our clean water resources to accelerating the rise of renewable energy, New York State is leading the way forward."
