States challenge Feds on new fracking rule
North Dakota joins Wyoming in lawsuit
April 1, 2015

North Dakota is joining Wyoming’s lawsuit against the Bureau of Land Management over its new fracking for rules for federal and tribal lands. Wyoming filed their challenge against the U.S. Department of the Interior on March 26, 2015. See the links below for more on the lawsuit. Wyoming argues that the BLM’s rule exceeds the agency’s statutory jurisdiction, conflicts with the Safe Drinking Water Act, and unlawfully interferes with the State of Wyoming’s hydraulic fracturing regulations.
