Interior Secretary Sally Jewell is responsible for what may be the Obama administration's single most important fracking policy decision: Drafting regulations for fracking on public lands.

That's why it's so appalling that, recently, when Secretary Jewell was asked if the administration supports a bill to close Dick Cheney's infamous Halliburton Loophole, which exempts fracking from the Safe Drinking Water Act and parts of other critical environmental laws, she said she wasn't "intimately familiar" with the loophole.1 2

That's not acceptable. The Halliburton Loophole is the biggest barrier to keeping us safe from fracking.3 4 This and other federal fracking loopholes are the reason that the burden of regulating fracking has fallen largely to state governments.5 As a result, underfunded regulatory agencies controlled by politicians flush with oily money have largely left Americans at the mercy of the fracking industry.

She can draft all the policies she wants, but ultimately the Prez can override it all...will he grow a pair and go against Big Oil & Gas????
