Not that the will of the people means much these days:
"I have no problem saying publicly, based on the information that I have, that I oppose fracking," said Commissioner Leon Inman. "I won't say that it's not right for North Carolina, but I will say it's not right for Stokes County."
And I have no problem agreeing with you. For every video I post each Friday, I watch between 5-10 until I settle on one. Sickness, anger, misery, financial despair. Fracking has brought these to people all over the country. Yet our elected officials claim we "won't know until we poke some holes." And we actually pay these guys.
Inman and Ernest Lankford, the board chairman, said they are hopeful that the wording in the final bill will change to give local governments some say in fracking.
Not bloody likely. That preemption clause is one of the most important aspects of the bill, as far as oil & gas companies are concerned.
