Jewell vows to resist lobbying on fracking regs
Interior Secretary Sally Jewell vowed Tuesday not to bend to lobbying from the oil and gas industry or its opponents in the drafting of new public lands hydraulic fracturing regulations.
"I would say the fracking rules are not bowing to industry pressure or environmental pressure," she told reporters. "They are taking the best science that's available, they're looking at historical practices, they're taking modern technologies and how they're being used, and coming out with regulations that address all of those things and do it in the most scientifically justifiable way."
