A Fast Track to Fracking

Record #:
Support for fracking, the controversial technique to drill for natural gas, continues to gain support from the state's Republican senators, specifically Bob Rucho and Mitch Gillespie. Environmentalists and Democrats oppose hydraulic fracking because of potential negative effects of pumping chemicals into the ground. Proponents argue drilling will boost the economy and create jobs.
