DiNapoli Proposes Remedial Fund for Fracking

New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli is proposing a remedial fund for hydrofracking, similar to the state's oil spill fund, to reimburse citizens if they suffer environmental damage from the gas drilling process.

WXXI Capitol Bureau Correspondent Karen DeWitt reports DiNapoli says he's attempting to address a missing element so far in the state Department of Environmental Conservation's plans.
