Fracking is a major concern in
several parts of the country. Many municipalities have been
frustrated in their attempts to manage the unknown short and
long term effects of fracking in their areas. The need for
local zoning to address the impacts of drilling and fracking
for oil and gas resources is critical to maintaining health,
welfare, and the quality of life. This Webinar will focus
on the need for local government regulation of oil and gas
fracking, drilling, and production to avoid preemption and
fill the vacuum left by less than comprehensive federal and
webinar will . . .
that federal and state preemption of local government activity
arising from mining and oil and gas extraction is not currently
