Court of Appeals to rule on local zoning laws for hydrofracking

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. - New York's highest court is expected to decide by July 4 on whether municipalities can use local zoning laws to ban shale gas development using hydraulic fracturing within their borders.

The seven-member Court of Appeals heard oral arguments on Tuesday in two cases where a mid-level Appellate Court unanimously concluded that in 2013, the state oil and gas law doesn't trump the authority of local governments to control land use.
