Natural Gas Fracking in Texas: The Texas Medical Association believes that the Texas Legislature, while encouraging natural gas production, should protect our water from the risk of fracking by requiring disclosure of fracking fluid components. This would include the removal of exemption from the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act and the removal of a special exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act; Clean Water Act; Clean Air Act; Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act; and National Environmental Policy Act for all companies engaged in this process (Res. 203-A-11; amended Res. 306-A-14).
