The Right to Know

Record #:
Members of North Carolina’s Mining and Energy Commission are crafting regulations for drilling. One of the first subjects they intend to address is the disclosure of fracking chemicals by fracking companies. The group will look to “best practices” from other states , but may not force the revealing of chemicals. Citizens claim they have a right to know as fracking often affects the quality of groundwater and can cause an increase in earthquakes.
