Governor of North Carolina, Predue, democrat, vetoes legislation that would lift the ban on fracking Sunday July 1, 2012. This story comes from the Chicago Tribune.
The governor supports energy developments and fracking, but at the present time she doesn’t feel the state has adequate policies in place to protect the people. ”Our drinking water and the health and safety of North Carolina’s families are too important,” Perdue said. “We can’t put them in jeopardy by rushing to allow fracking without proper safeguards.”
