New Jersey Legislature bans fracking

This week the New Jersey Assembly voted to ban hydraulic fracturing in NJ in a bipartisan overwhelming vote (58 to 11, 8 abstained), following on the landslide vote 32-1 earlier in the day by the NJ Senate. The new law can be vetoed by the Governor. New Jersey is the first state legislature to ban fracking.
