House committee vote on fracking delayed
SPRINGFIELD (AP) – An Illinois House committee has delayed voting on a measure that would regulate hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the state.
The House Revenue and Finance Committee was expected to meet Friday morning to vote on the regulatory proposal, but lawmakers did not gather in Springfield.
Backers of the measure that would regulate this high-volume gas and oil drilling practice announced Thursday that they have agreed on the fees and extraction taxes that drillers would pay to the state.
