Broome Fracking Truck Law Vetoed

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A road use fee measure approved by lawmakers in anticipation of heavy truck traffic associated with future fracking activity is being vetoed by Broome County Executive Debra Preston.

The proposal raised concerns among some residents and local business operators.

Some who spoke at a public hearing indicated they weren’t happy with the potential costs they’d face if the law took effect.

County officials are planning to meet with those who’ve expressed concerns about the original measure as part of an effort to develop a revised road use agreement.

There’s no word as to when the legislature may vote on a new proposal.
