What a surprise. The Wyoming Gov. lobbying for the oil and gas drilling industry.

It is time for full disclosure on all the chemicals that the industry uses in the fracking process. Water in the West is much too valuable a commodity to waste or contaminate.

I'm not much of an environmentalist, but we're SOL if the water supply gets contaminated.

I hope they hang the drillers who improperly disposed of fracking fluids. This clown needs to be in jail.
