Report From Congressional Hearing on Fracking

I read an interesting summary of the recent Congressional hearing that questioned the 2005 exemption of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") from federal regulation. Based on this report, the hearing was fairly benign, but who knows what will happen going forward. I get the impression that Reps. Diana DeGette of Colorado and Maurice Hinchey of New York still will introduce a bill under the Safe Drinking Water Act to regulate the process.
