Quinn Signs Fracking Bill


Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation that clears the way for fracking to go forward in the state… under the watchful eye of regulators. 

 

Supporters say the bill will create jobs and revenue in the state… and allow companies to extract more needed oil and natural gas from well below the Earth’s surface. 

 

Quinn signed the bill in private and did not stage a signing ceremony, apparently to avoid antagonizing environmentalists who say the effects of fracking on the Earth and groundwater are still unknown.
