Quinn Signs Bill Regulating Fracking

The fracking industry should be booming in Illinois within the next three years.  That’s according to Mark Denzler, with the Illinois Manufacturers Association, who says the industry will put tens of thousands of people to work.  Governor Quinn signed a bill yesterday which will regulate the industry and ensure companies abide by rules designed to protect the state’s air and water.  The new law requires companies to disclose what chemicals they’ll be using in the fracking process and it requires they do ground water testing both before and after they drill.
