Trump overturns Obama’s ‘fracking’ rules but the story is not what you think


I slid over to one of the “other” news channels for a sec…. of course I heard all of the doom and gloom that Trump was over turning Obama’s fracking rules and would allow undisclosed chemicals into God’s green earth… then I caught this from the Daily Caller which gives us the back story,.

Interior will publish the repeal of the rule two days after the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed an attempt to revive the Obama-era regulation. The court gave Interior until mid-January to repeal the rule.
