N.Y. Town Is Sued Over Ban on Fracking Discussion

(NYT Green)

Environmental advocates filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against a small town in Broome County, N.Y., whose board of supervisors has blocked discussion of fracking at public meetings.

The Natural Resources Defense Council and Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy argue that the board of the town of Sanford violated citizens’ right to free speech when it voted unanimously last September to block any further discussion of the controversial natural gas extraction technique during the public comment sections of town board meetings.
