California pro-fracking bill disguised as anti-fracking bill

By Jim Mackinnon Published: October 11, 2013

Those wily California politicians.

What was initially said to be anti-fracking legislation in California was amended multiple times and actually was pro-fracking when state officials signed the legislation, reports the MasterResource energy blog.

Wayne Lusvardi at MasterResource reports that California State Senate Bill 4 (SB4) was reported by mainstream media as anti-fracking legislation.

But the reality is that SB 4 turned out to provide the opposite of what was reported.

Can you imagine California’s Democratic-controlled legislature and Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown passing a pro-fracking bill?  Neither could the mainstream media in California that reported state officials had passed an anti-fracking bill on Sept. 20 sponsored by State Senator Fran Pavley (D, Los Angeles County), the leader of the green voting block in both houses of the legislature. - See more at: http://www.masterresource.org/2013/10/the-california-current-weekly-digest-october-4-2013/#sthash.1E0wi3Ic.dpuf
