Fracking on Trial

Record #:
Clean Water for North Carolina and a handful of North Carolina county officials filed a complaint against the Mining and Energy Commission (MEC), the State of North Carolina, and N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources on Friday, May 2, 2015. In prior months, the MEC ruled that local governments could not pass ordinances to forbid fracking within their jurisdictions. The lawsuit attacks this action, contending that the Legislature violated the state constitution by allowing the MEC to draft this law. A temporary statewide ban on fracking could occur if a judge decides the case has worth.
