The Congressional Research Service has issued a new 10-page report looking at hydraulic fracturing or fracking and the federal National Environmental Policy Act.
The 10-page report by attorney Brandon J. Murrill looks at two situations in which agencies argued they did not need to conduct a comprehensive environmental review of fracking under NEPA.
The April 25 report looked at issues involving the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development agency and the Delaware River Basin Commission.
