Andrew Cuomo Would Rather Not Have Jobs For New York

The Wall Street Journal reports:
Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York has been bowing to the demands of radical environmentalists who want a moratorium on natural gas fracking. Upstate New York is an economic wasteland, and Buffalo is one of the nation's poorest cities. A study last year from the Manhattan Institute found that hydraulic fracking could be a boon to the state, creating more than $11 billion in economic output and more than 15,000 jobs by 2020.
But, he's got corporate welfare for the Buffalo Bills!
