Fracking Part 2

Monday, September 8, 2014

We recently devoted an hour to fracking, which just scratched the surface of the topic, and brought out a passionate response from many listeners. As the state considers rules for fracking, we revisit the topic.  State regulators will decide whether or not to allow the practice and on the rules governing it sometime this fall and we will hear from people on both sides of the issue and share many of the comments and questions that came from you during our last show on the topic.
