House GOP to highlight support for fracking, nat gas exports

House Republicans are moving to show their support for natural gas exports and opposition to planned hydraulic fracturing regulations on federal lands.

The House Natural Resources Committee scheduled a hearing for May 8 that called the Interior Department's expected fracturing regulations a "recipe for government waste, duplication and delay." Separately, a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee is to hold a hearing on May 7 to stress the economic benefits of liquefied natural gas exports.
