Fracking (Support)

SB 146 (Stewart) and HB 239 (Fitzenhagen) would prohibit advanced well stimulation treatment (commonly referred to as “fracking”) as defined in the bills. SB 314 (Montford) would prohibit the performance of “high-pressure well stimulation” and “matrix acidization” (also commonly referred to as “fracking”) as defined in the bill and would require the Department of Environmental Protection to conduct a study on high-pressure well stimulation and matrix acidization.
