BLM Extends Fracking Comment Period

June 26, 2012

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has extended the comment period for its proposed rule to regulate hydraulic fracturing. The comment period will now close on September 10, 2012.

The proposed rule would require disclosure to public of chemicals used in fracking on public land.

Associated Equipment Distributors and others say government policy should promote rather than discourage domestic energy production.
