Florida legislators expect fracking shale will happen in their state.
The Palm Beach Post writes: "The national debate about a type of oil and gas drilling known as 'fracking' has never hit home in Florida.
"But state Rep. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero, says that 'every indication is at some point in the future' fracking — or, more formally, hydraulic fracturing — will happen in Florida.
"Rodrigues on Thursday moved forward with a bill (HB 743) that would lead to companies reporting the chemicals they inject into the ground while fracking in the state."
