From the Associated Press this week:
The New Jersey Senate has voted to ban treating or storing waste products created by natural gas drillers.
The legislation approved Monday also stops the use of waste water from hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, for deicing or suppressing dust.
The Senate passed the bill by a 33-4 vote. It has not yet been considered by the Assembly.
Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a similar measure passed by a prior Legislature, saying it appeared to violate the interstate commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution.
Environmentalists say new information has emerged. There currently are no fracking operations in New Jersey.
The Senate bill deals with waste from out-of-state.
