DRBC: No Timetable For Finalizing Fracking Ban, Makes Comments Available

The Delaware River Basin Commission Wednesday issued a statement saying it has no set schedule for finalizing its proposed ban on fracking in the watershed.  It also made available the comments submitted as part of its public comment period on the proposed moratorium.

“The Commission will take time to review and consider the oral comments and written submissions received, determine whether any changes based on the comments are appropriate, and prepare a response document.  There is no set schedule for a vote by the Commissioners to adopt final rules.  As always, the Commission may adopt final rules only at a duly-noticed public meeting.”
