As many states reap the benefits of fracking, others increasingly are lining up against it.
Ms. Hennessey said she thinks Mr. Cuomo ultimately will approve fracking on a limited basis in the state, a move for which New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg also has expressed support.
"He campaigned against [fracking] in 2010 when he was elected. They've gone after the industry for other things. This is the latest in a series of Schneiderman initiatives against the oil and gas industry," said Yvonne E. Hennessey, an attorney with the law firm Hiscock & Barclay LLP in Albany, N.Y., who has represented clients in the oil and gas sector.
