US - Draft FRAC Act before Congress.

Today we read of a draft FRAC Act currently before Congress seeking to................

a. Require disclosure of the chemical constituents used in the fracturing process, but not the proprietary formula.

b. Repeal a provision added ( by the Bush Administration ) to the Energy Policy Act of 2005 exempting the industry from complying with the Safe Drinking Water Act ( SWDA), one of America's landmark environmental and public health statutes.

We wish them well and wonder if a similar disclosure clause might be introduced in mainland Europe. Ed.
