Interior Department Extends Comment Period for Federal Lands Fracking Proposal

The U.S. Department of the Interior has extended the comment period by 60 days for the revised proposed rules for hydraulic fracturing on federal lands.  Interior Secretary Sally Jewell indicated that various interest groups had requested more time to review the 171-page proposal issued in May.  The comment period was set to expire on June 24, 2013, but comments will now be accepted through late August.
