 Anti-fracking activists took their concerns to the voters of Denton, Texas in the recent November general election and passed a city fracking ban. It went into effect on December first. But industry leaders and the Texas Rail Road Commission say that doesn’t matter. They say it’s still “drill baby drill” for Denton. The Texas Oil and Gas Association and the Texas General Land Commission are now suing Denton over the frack ban. Cathy McMullan is the president of Frack Free Denton.
