Committee to Closely Review EPA Hydraulic Fracturing Study


Location: Washington, DC

This afternoon, Rep. Ralph Hall (R-TX), Chairman of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, released the following statement assuring close oversight of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on hydraulic fracturing:

"I look forward to close review and oversight of the EPA's forthcoming study on hydraulic fracturing practices. Natural gas is a vital resource, and hydraulic fracturing is a well-established process that is enabling greatly increased production of clean, affordable energy. This production is critical to America's economic growth, but unfortunately has been the subject of a growing number of uninformed allegations and misleading attacks.

"Accordingly, I will be working to ensure that this Congressionally directed study is balanced, appropriately scoped, and most importantly, driven by sound scientific and risk assessment principles."
