Fracking Transparency Bill Moves Forward in Illinois Senate


"The legislation, introduced in February by state Sen. David Koehler, D-Peoria, was approved April 12 in a 6-2 vote by the Illinois Senate’s Environment and Conservation Committee. The bill is scheduled for a reading before the full Senate on Tuesday.

If passed, the bill would force companies to disclose all chemicals used during drilling and completion of fracking wells. Current state law allows details of some mixtures used in the fracking process to remain confidential because they are considered proprietary information."
