Democrats Oppose Natural-gas Production

We warned this was coming. "Natural Gas Fracking" will be regulated by EPA and there will be full disclosure of toxic chemicals injected into the groundwater. This is a foregone conclusion.

Congressional Democrats have once again declared their opposition to weaning America off the dangers of foreign oil, this time by introducing into Congress the Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals (FRAC) Act.

The proposed law, introduced this week in Congress for the third time, would require energy companies to disclose chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing, and most importantly, close a loophole that exempts drilling operators from drinking water regulations. It is being hailed by environmentalists as a step toward increasing the power and regulatory reach of the Environmental Protection Agency, which in turn, will increase the national deficit, boost government spending, and increase the reach of the federal government.
