I hope the bills pass, and that other states seriously consider legislation of this type. Even if fracking hasn't come to your state yet, you might want to contact your local state legislators to start drafting a bill.

Thanks Cal for the link to the great article by Cole Champan. Kudos to Representatives Denise Provost(D), Peter V. Kocot(D) and Sean Garballey(D) for introducing their Bills. Read and noted.

I cannot understand why a population of intelligent people would want to poison their own children. Do these fracking companies live on a special island or something? Come on!

"... but basically I think we all agree on the issue which is to protect the public health of our constituents,"...

Wish I could read a quote like that from my state and local government officials, but they have all gone green (not the ecological kind either!)
