Description

The EPA OIG is beginning a new project that will "determine and evaluate what regulatory authority is available to the EPA and states, identify potential threats to water resources from hydraulic fracturing, and evaluate the EPA’s and states’ responses to them." In other words, the OIG wants to push its way into regulating oil and gas drilling too--along with their parent EPA. I.e., a federal takeover of drilling regulation.
