Upstate towns threatening to secede from New York

Written By kom nampuldu on Senin, 02 Maret 2015 | 18.18

More than a dozen upstate towns are threatening to try to secede from New York and become part of Pennsylvania because of projected economic losses over Gov. Cuomo's decision to ban fracking.

The town leaders from New York's Southern Tier region said they would be better off in the Keystone State after Cuomo put the kibosh on natural-gas drilling here.

Towns on both sides of the state boundary have the same geology, but only the businesses in Pennsylvania, where fracking is allowed, have been thriving, said officials from the 15 towns in Broome, Delaware, Sullivan and Tioga counties.

The group's Upstate New York Towns Association says it is now exploring secession over the issue, as well as over property taxes and low sales-tax revenue.

"We have no jobs and no income. The richest resource we have is in the ground,'' said Conklin Town Supervisor Jim Finch.

Secession would require approval from both the New York and Pennsylvania legislatures, as well as the federal government.
