ROLL CALL: How they voted on hydrofracking moratorium

0

The Democratic-led Assembly easily passed a two-year moratorium on hydrofracking, sending the bill to the Senate where Democrats are ready to support it.

The question is whether the Republican coalition with the Independent Democratic Conference will let the bill come to a vote. The IDC yesterday called for a similar two-year moratorium.

The Assembly vote was largely along party lines, with most Republicans opposing the moratorium. The measure passed 103-40.

Three Assembly Republicans supported it, though: John Ceretto of Niagara Falls, Brian Curran of Long Island and Mark Johns of the Rochester area. Two Democrats opposed the moratorium: Dov Hikind of Brooklyn and Robin Schimminger of Buffalo.
