New York's top environmental regulator hopes there's a decision regarding hydrofracking in the state soon.
Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joseph Martens says he believes New York leaders will be able to make a determination on the controversial drilling practice by the end of February.
High-volume hydrofracking was first put on hold by the DEC in July of 2008, when its environmental review began. The debate over hydrofracking has reached a fever pitch in recent months.
