Last-minute legislative hydrofracking maneuvers?

I noted earlier that New York State Senator Jim Seward had co-sponsored a Senate bill clarifying town's rights to regulate drilling through zoning, but Solid Shale reports that he's introduced his own bill.

Yesterday, the Assembly passed a "same as" bill matching the one he'd co-sponsored. There are some changes in the new one he's sponsoring.

I'm not sure where this is going, but definitely watch Solid Shale for faster reporting than I can likely manage as the legislative session hurtles to a close.
