People opposed to high-volume hydraulic fracturing for natural gas development in New York are planning to protest during Governor Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address.

Buses from Binghamton and from across the state are expected to bring people to Albany on Wednesday for a rally to coincide with the speech.

Walter Hang, president of Ithaca-based Toxics Targeting, says fracking opponents intend to show up in force to urge Cuomo to maintain the moratorium that's been in place for more than five years.

During a visit to Binghamton two months ago, the governor said issues related to fracking were still under review by his administration.

Cuomo said: "When we have a conclusive opinion, then we'll announce it."

When asked by WNBF News whether he still expected to make an announcement before the 2014 election, the governor said: "Yes, I do."

Hang said Cuomo has since indicated he, in fact, may not make a final decision regarding fracking prior to Election Day.

Hang renewed his call for the governor to allow a fully transparent review of all fracking-related issues before New York state's policy is established.
