Libous provided the document to The Associated Press after published reports said he was part of a real estate firm that is buying Southern Tier property, which could significantly increase in value if hydraulic fracturing for gas is approved.
Libous is a Southern Tier Republican leading the effort to allow drilling, arguing it would be a major source of new jobs and economic boon for the state, but environmental groups say fracking threatens public health.
"I strongly support hydro-fracking because it would bring jobs, growth and hope to thousands in our region," Libous told The AP. "Not because I stand to gain even a nickel from it."
Fracking is a drilling process that frees gas from deep rock deposits by injecting wells with chemical-laced water at high pressure.
Libous said he doesn't own any land in New York that is "under contract or that could generate earnings from hydro-fracking."
