NY anti-frackers get win but inside view less rosy - Article Photos 1/1

FILE - In this Sept. 19, 2012 file photo New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo speaks during a news conference in the Red Room at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y. Environmental groups fighting fracking say Cuomo's order for a new public health study is a sign he may be backing off his plans to allow the hotly debated extraction process. While Cuomo insists he has made no decision, he has repeatedly said he will approve fracking if the science shows it can be done safely. And the study,if it finds no major threats , could give him the cover to move forward with more political benefits than hits. (AP Photo/Mike Groll)
