LA City Council Takes Aim at Fracking

Hosted by

Last Friday, 10 members of the LA City Council asked City Attorney Mike Feuer to draw up a ban on fracking. That's short for hydraulic fracturing, the use of water and some chemicals to extract oil that's otherwise hard to get. Governor Brown signed a state law to regulate fracking last year, but some legislators want to amend it. In the meantime, Los Angeles may take steps of its own.
