Today, the North Carolina House of Representatives passed SB820. It legalizes fracking in the State of North Carolina and could allow drilling by 2014.
Representative Pricey Harrison is introducing an amendment to SB820, the North Carolina fracking bill, that would address many of our major concerns with the bill. We are grateful to Representative Harrison for taking action to protect the rights of North Carolina landowners. We hope that legislators will support this amendment as they consider the bill today. Here’s a quick breakdown of what the amendment does.
