Abbott Signs “Denton Fracking Bill”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has signed legislation that would preempt local authorities to regulate fracking  and a wide variety of oil and gas-related activities, preventing environmentally harmful oil and natural gas production.

Voters in Denton, a university town near Dallas, banned hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in the area in November 2014.

Abbott said, Texas needs to avoid a “patchwork of local regulations” that threaten oil and gas production.

House Bill 40 does a “profound job of protecting private property rights,” said Abbott.
