Bishop: EPA Study Damaging to Administration's Push for Federal Fracturing Rule

House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement in response to the study issued today by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on hydraulic fracturing activities and drinking water resources.

“After five years of study, the EPA learned exactly what the states, industry and even some of the more competent bureaucrats in the Obama Administration have known for some time – hydraulic fracturing is not a threat to drinking water.  This report is damaging for the Administration and contradicts a predominant claim the White House has used to justify a federal fracturing rule.”
