Denton Texas fracking ban overturned by state legislature

Mon, 06/01/2015
The city of Denton, Texas passed a ban against hydraulic fracturing (fracking) last November. Despite being overspent 10 to 1 in campaign funding, the anti-fracking initiative passed by a wide margin of 18%, which included a majority of both Democratic and Republican voters. 

However, the Texas state legislature effectively overturned the ban by passing House Bill 40. The law also limits the ability of all Texas municipalities from regulating fracking within their city limits. 

Fracking has started back up in Denton. The Denton City Council meets Tuesday, June 2 to decide whether to repeal the ban. 

To find out more, KBOO's Ken Jones spoke with Cathy McMullen, president of the Denton Drilling Awareness Group. 6:34 minutes (3 MB)
