Bill To Open Fracking in Florida Moves Forward

Posted December 3, 2015 at 6:12am

The Associated Press reports that “Florida could be opened up to fracking under a bill that would require the Department of Environmental Protection to study and set regulations for the method of oil and gas drilling.”  

“A House committee voted 9-3 to approve the bill Wednesday despite strong opposition from environmentalists who said fracking could contaminate drinking water and cause health problems.”
