Sept. 20, 2013: Reporters and Albany Law fracking symposium preview

Michael Johnson of City and State presents this week’s Winners and Losers.

AP’s Michael Gormley and NY Daily News’ Ken Lovett provide analysis of the week in politics.

We preview an Albany Law School forum on fracking to take place on Tuesday called, “Fractured Communities: Hydraulic Fracturing and the Law in New York State”.

The forum will feature a panel discussion with 4 hydraulic fracturing experts who will discuss climate impacts, land use and real estate issues, and economic impacts associated with natural gas drilling.

We speak with panel moderator: Tom Wilber, author, Under the Surface: Fracking, Fortunes, and the Fate of the Marcellus Shale.

The forum also features a debate between Deborah Goldberg of Earth Justice who is representing the Town of Dryden in the home rule case the Court of Appeals has agreed to hear, and Tom West, Managing Partner, The West Firm, and Counsel, Norse Energy Corporation USA. We speak with Tom West on today’s show.
