ALBANY –- The stars are out at the Capitol. This time, the issue is hydrofracking.
“These jobs don’t stay in the state …This is a boom and bust economy,’’ actor Mark Ruffalo said of the hydrofracking industry’s effort to begin drilling for natural gas in the state.
Ruffalo is being joined today at the Capitol by Academy Award winning actor Melissa Leo and singers Natalie Merchant and Joan Osborne, among others, in an attempt to push the Cuomo administration away from its interest in pursuing hydrofracking for natural gas.
“It will be the doom of this governor and the doom of this state to roll out hydrofracking in this state,’’ warned Ruffalo, who lives in the Catskills area.
