While environmental groups are praising last week to ban fracking, some local business owners who were hoping for a drilling-related boom are disappointed, according to a report.
"I'm devastated," New York apple grower David Johnson told The Guardian.
Energy companies denied the chance to drill in New York can move rigs to other states. But business owners and landowners, who had hoped to reap royalties from gas production, do not have that option.
Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, forces natural gas and crude oil out of shale buried deep below the earth by using highly pressurized and treated water.
Other states that sit on top of the massive Marcellus Shale—Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania—have been benefiting from one of the world's largest natural gas deposits. Most have seen a surge in job creation and tax receipts.

But people like business owner Johnson, who runs a 30-acre pick-your-own apple farm on 400 acres in Binghamton, feel let down. Johnson said drilling would have helped to keep farms in business and create new jobs.
