Shimkus Urges Gov. to Sign Fracking Bill


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) is writing Governor Quinn urging him to sign the fracking bill, SB 1715, into state law.

"This bill has the strictest environmental protections in the nation, and at the same time has the support of the oil and gas industry," Shimkus noted. "Establishing the guidelines for fracking in the state will bring immediate jobs to the rural areas of Illinois that I represent."

The General Assembly passed the bill with wide bipartisan majorities in both the House and Senate last week.
