In reference to HB 3328, the Texas disclosure bill, Elizabeth Ames Jones, Chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission said that “Gas drillers won’t be required to reveal all the chemicals they shoot underground in the process because they are trade secrets.”
“We won’t be knowing the recipes,” Jones said during a telephone interview from the state capital, Austin. “That’s sacred ground as far as I’m concerned and I don’t think that’s at all the direction we want to go in.”

The Safe Fracking Coalition out of Laredo, TX will host a town hall meeting this Friday at 6 p.m.

A cloak of "sacredness" and good intentions is the very essence of a good scam. A spokesperson who smiles sweetly, has no conscience and says God has ordained it ~ they're definitely diggin in.
