Binghamton Mayor Matthew Ryan was among several Upstate New York mayors who traveled to Albany this week to urge more research into the health and environmental impacts of hydaulic fracture drilling for natural gas in the state.

Ryan told reporters he didn’t think New York would ever be ready for gas exploration and the state should look for a different route in meeting its energy needs.

Ryan was part of a group traveling to the capitol called Elected Officials to Protect New York.  The group is made up of over 500 officials from 61 counties in the state.

Ryan said there are only just now studies being started to look into the medical impacts of the controversial method. The Democrat says he doesn’t want New York residents to be used as guinea pigs.
