Fracking opponents rally at Illinois Statehouse
SPRINGFIELD – Dozens of environmentalists and land owners are meeting with lawmakers in Springfield hoping to persuade them to temporarily ban high-volume oil and gas drilling in Illinois.
Opponents of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” held a rally and lobbied Illinois legislators Tuesday. They’re hoping to win support for a two-year moratorium on the practice instead of regulations that would allow it.
Fracking opponents say they were ignored during negotiations over a regulatory bill, which proponents say would give Illinois the nation’s toughest regulations.
