"June" might mean "this summer"

Delays on government reports, especially complex and controversial ones, aren't entirely surprising. The Albany Times-Union reports that the New York State study on hydrofracking may not come out precisely on time:

"We're going to do a very thorough job...I'm confident we are going to have all the information we need to complete the supplemental generic environmental impact statement."...

"It's on or about June, is the precise words in the executive order," Martens said. "It will come out when I'm satisfied that it's ready to come out."

"I'm satisfied it's going to come out, but probably more like this summer some time," he said.

That will be a final draft, but apparently there will still be some public comment time afterward.
