A statewide group of pro-drilling landowners says it will sue New York state if the Department of Environmental Conservation misses a fast-approaching deadline for its proposed hydraulic fracturing rules.

In a newsletter distributed to its members Friday, the head of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York said the group is "laying the ground work for a lawsuit against New York State" if the state doesn’t finalize its fracking regulations by Feb. 27. If not finished by then, the regulations would expire.
