1. Ulysses Town Fracking Ban

Neither the federal Environmental Protection Agency, nor the New York Department of Environmental Conservation has stepped forward to protect the people from the plundering of our resources, poisoning our water, crowding and damaging our roads, ruining our beautiful landscapes, threatening our agriculture and tourism caused by industrialized gas extraction.

Can our local government step in and fill the gap? Let's find out. We propose that the Town Board of Ulysses, New York enact a total ban on the technique known as high-volume slick water, horizontal hydraulic fracturing for the extraction of methane gas.
