NJ Hydraulic Fracturing Moratorium Ends

A one-year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in New Jersey ended yesterday, the Star-Ledger reports.  Gas resources are projected to be limited in New Jersey, and a New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection spokesman reported that no applications or interest from exploration and production companies had been received.  However, anti-fracking advocates have pushed for New Jersey to extend the moratium.
