Obama Cracks Down on Fracking
from The Hill
The Obama administration is setting new standards for the controversial hydraulic fracturing process, the first major federal effort to crack down on the practice that has largely been behind the nation's oil and natural gas boom. The fracking standards only apply to drilling on leased federal land and land owned by American Indian tribes, which account for less than a quarter of the country's oil production and 17 percent of its gas. The vast majority of fracking happens off federal land, regulators said.
