Bully for him to promote fracking in NC. But other states are also using best practices, the best technology, and the best legal landscape. Illinois is on the cusp of its own shale fracturing boom. The thing is, we've been fracking for 60 years in this state- just not horizontally. Ergo DNR's rules and regs already adequately address practices, technology, and legal landscape. The only new phenomenon is the hysteria being perpetrated by the Liberal agenda.
