Just a short update on last night’s post.
North Dakota’s law makers appear to be ahead of the game.
Today the North Dakota House unanimously (92-0) passed a law that helps protect the state from any changes that the EPA implements.

House Bill 1216 states hydraulic fracturing is an acceptable recovery process in North Dakota.

If also approved by the Senate, the bill would mean the state could intervene if the Environmental Protection Agency or another federal agency attempts to impose regulations on fracking, he said.

He = Rep. Jim Kasper, R-Fargo

See the full story here.  (May go down in a few days)
Searching the bill will produce several other similar articles.

The law is very short and vague, but from what I can gather it would allow the state of North Dakota to start a legal battle as soon as the EPA implements any federal regulations regarding fracking.
