Gov. Mead Applauds Fracking Decision

(Courtesy of Governor Matt Mead’s Office)

Governor Matt Mead said he is pleased with District Judge Catherine Wilking’s order affirming Wyoming’s policy regarding the disclosure of hydraulic fracturing components. Environmental groups had requested the ingredient lists from the Wyoming Oil and Gas conservation commission, arguing that the public needs to know what chemicals companies are putting underground. The judge denied the request.

Governor Mead said Wyoming led the nation in requiring the disclosure of hydraulic fracturing components, these disclosure requirements were well done, and other states have followed wyoming’s lead in this area. Mead said the decision recognizes the importance of a state-based approach to regulating hydraulic fracturing – one that balances this important method for producing energy with environmental protection.
