1. When House Bill 8 comes up, we should use it to fight fracking.

3. I had a window open composing my post when you posted your comment mmonk.

I was looking at it from one way and hadn't thought of looking at it from your perspective.

These crooks are going to sock it to us in more ways than we'll be able to keep track of.

Long 4 years......

2. House Bill 8

Wonder how this would effect the use of private land for fracking for gas/oil? So would Big Energy McCrory find a way to turn private fracking operations into a government operation or allow private companies special rights since the fracking produces oil/gas used by the public or is acting on behalf of the public's interest?

Color me confused about this change in language. NC Teabaggers always have some slimy scum up their sleeves - it's for a reason and it's usually not for the benefit of citizen or landowners or anyone else not associated with corporations and big money businesses. They're not looking out for any of us IOW.
