EPA Administrator Forecasts Potential Shift on Bush-Era Drilling Loophole
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson
Jackson said she recognized that the current regulations restrict the EPA’s ability to protect groundwater and said the issue “was well worth looking into.” But she didn’t say
“Big ships turn slowly,” said Bruce Baizel, an attorney with the Oil and Gas Accountability Project, “but I think this is the first time EPA has acknowledged that maybe their previous conclusions were not entirely supported by sound science.”
And from another article about Jackson’s visit to Wyoming:
“We owe the people of Wyoming, and I have a larger question for the people of the country to make sure we’re looking at hydraulic fracturing to make sure that we’re being as protective as we can to future generations,” she said.
