Fracking Opponents Push to Restrict or Halt Practice


Opponents of fracking admit they are fighting an uphill battle to persuade Illinois lawmakers to restrict or halt the practice.

 

But they say they will keep looking for the votes to pass a package of 12 bills that would impose a moratorium on fracking… or require much stricter regulation and oversight.

 

Fracking is short for hydraulic fracturing, which uses high-pressure sprays to break up rock formations far below the Earth’s surface, releasing oil and natural gas underneath.

 

Supporters say fracking will mean more energy self-sufficiency and jobs… but opponents say it threatens to contaminate groundwater and may even contribute to dangerous earthquakes.
