Fracking protest hits the State Fair

Fracking in Illinois is currently on hold while the Illinois Department of Natural Resources draws up administrative rules to implement the state’s fracking law. But opponents of hydraulic fracturing are using the Illinois State Fair to draw attention to the reasons why they think fracking is bad energy policy. We hear from Tom Wolf from The Energy Council at Illiois Chamber of Commerce and fracking opponent Stephen Nickles of the group SAFE (Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing Our Environment).
