Fracking Law Passes in North Carolina

Posted: Updated:

Governor Pat McCrory signed the Energy Modernization Act of 2014, which will allow companies to start fracking in North Carolina.

The law paves the way for companies to begin getting permitted.

It also makes it a felony for anyone to disclose information about the fracking chemicals pumped into the ground.

The law created a lot of controversy among people who were passionately for and against fracking in the state.

Governor McCrory said, “We remain intensely focused on creating good jobs, particularly in our rural areas," said Governor McCrory. "We have watched and waited as other states moved forward with energy exploration, and it is finally our turn. This legislation will spur economic development at all levels of our economy, not just the energy sector."
