New York State Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo is requesting that Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joseph Martenz convene a meeting of the High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing Advisory Panel.

The Endwell Democrat is a member of the panel but says it's probably been a year since it met.

Lupardo says she has a lot of questions about the recently released rulemaking document from the D.E.C., including the scope of health experts' review and how that differs from a full health impact statement.  Lupardo says she also has questions on how the public would be able to provide input in the process.
