WASHINGTON, DC – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Legislative Representative Alex Taurel issued this statement following the release of the Obama administration’s updated rules for hydraulic fracturing on America’s public lands:

“These updated rules fail to protect public health or the environment. The Obama Administration should stand up to the oil companies and defend the American people from threats to their health, land, and drinking water. We’re deeply disappointed by this proposal and need the administration to strengthen these rules before finalizing them.”
