This is different, since there are no opponents thus far, and there is more and more support mounting. For example, the New York City council just passed resolution 879 to call upon the governor to sign both bills. These are small bills, with little current impact, but large future potential. Geothermal was on no-ones radar screen in NYS until the NY Geo association was formed and brought many issues to the table, and people in the government indeed started to listen and started to take action. The bills will have impact on other NYS agencies, and many people did not even know what geothermal is. So it is understandable and reasonable that NYS and the Governor's staff informs themselves and gets educated about the technology first, which they really currently do.
