League Comments on Proposed Hydraulic Fracturing Rule

LWVUS sent a range of comments to the Bureau of Land Management regarding a proposed rule that would regulate hydraulic fracturing on public land and Indian land. The rule would provide disclosure to the public of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing on public land and Indian land, strengthen regulations related to well−bore integrity, and address issues related to flow−back water.
