CA Pushes Bills Against Fracking

Bloomberg BNA reports that "the Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Water Quality advanced measures April 8 seeking to impose a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing activities at oil and gas fields in California and to update the state's oil spill response program to address the risks of importing crude oil by rail."  

"Both bills now head to the Senate Committee on Environmental Quality for further action."  

"The measure to halt oil and gas well stimulation treatments cleared the committee on a 5-2 vote. The bill to update the state's oil spill prevention and response program cleared the committee on a 7-1 vote."
