Washington, DC
Friday, July 8, 2011

House Agriculture and Natural Resources Subcommittees held a joint hearing to examine a U.S. Forest Service draft plan banning horizontal drilling for oil and gas on federal lands in Virginia and West Virginia. Hydraulic drilling, known as fracking, injects water and chemicals into underground rock to release natural gas into wells.  Witnesses included representatives from the Interior Department, U.S. Forest Service, the oil & gas industry and environmental advocacy groups.
