    can’t say much about the others states, but here in bidness friendly (at least if you are related to oil and gas, or governor hair doo) there isnt 0 regulations about fracking. and short of blowing up a city (or airport. hard to believe but true they have that at a major airport), it wont even make the news. not that it matters if it did. and we are proud of it too!

    We will probably see even more regulation changes after the recent stunts by Chesapeake in Pennsylvania to dramatically increase the trasnprotation charges to virtually eliminate royalties to property owners. I don’t think the voters are going to take kindly to their government allowing companies virtually unlimited rights to drill while not sharing the revenue with the property owners and voters.

    I would like to think that when your water is poisoned, people would be more likely to vote against the party of “self-regulation”. Sadly, there is no evidence that anyone would ever vote against an oil company, regardless of how bad their water supply gets.

    In a recent Congressional special election in Florida, an oil company lobbyist was elected to the U.S. Congress. That is no joke. It saves the oil companies a lot of money in lobbying fees to just have their employees do the voting.
