Broome County state senator Thomas Libous, a proponent of shale gas development in his Southern Tier district, tells downstate politicians to frack off.
"Look, I respect that everyone has an opinion, but I don't go to New York City or western New York or Long Island and tell them how to legislate," Libous said. "They're elected by the people there and they do their thing. We seem to have so many experts all around the state telling the people of the Southern Tier what's good for us. And you know what? I'm getting a little tired of it."
