Quinn confident in fracking rule-making process

6 months, 3 weeks ago From Associated Press

Gov. Pat Quinn's administration is reacting to a Marion Democrat's proposal to jump-start hydraulic fracturing in Illinois after complaints from industry groups.

Grant Klinzman, a spokesman for Gov. Pat Quinn, says the administration takes hydraulic fracturing very seriously and is "making sure it is done right."

The governor's spokesman says the Department of Natural Resources has done "an unprecedented amount of work" to make sure the public, advocates and experts have a voice in the process.

The law establishes a timeline to complete the rules by November.

Rep. John Bradley of Marion recently proposed legislation that would skip the rulemaking process by the DNR. Oil and gas industry representatives say the rule-making process has been taking too long.

The bill is SB649.
