California Fracking Moratorium Moves Forward

Hosted by

Despite widespread concern by environmental groups and residents from Ventura to Culver City, the legislature has refused to require oil companies to disclose where they're conducting hydraulic fracturing – fracking -- or to reveal what chemicals they use in the process. The State Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources is conducting workshops to educate residents and get put input on proposed regulations. In the meantime, a proposed moratorium has passed the Assembly and was approved yesterday by a Senate Committee.
