Business, Labor Demand Faster Action On Fracking


Business and labor groups are pushing Governor Pat Quinn for faster action on rules that would allow fracking to begin in Illinois. 

 

Quinn approved an agreement more than a year ago to allow the technique to extract oil and natural gas from deep below the Earth’s surface.  But the Department of Natural Resources still hasn’t drafted the rules needed to govern the practice… or even hired all the staff it says it needs to finish the job. 

 

A pro-fracking coalition says the delays are costing the state jobs… and suggest that Quinn may be dragging his feet in order to appease political supporters who have raised concerns about the safety of fracking.
