Washington will now prohibit the practice of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” for oil and natural gas exploration and production, according to legislation that Gov. Jay Inslee signed into law on Wednesday.

Because fracking uses relatively new technology, its effects on human and environmental health are largely unknown. Experts are prevented from effectively anticipating and detecting those effects by an exemption from public disclosure requirements for fracking fluid’s chemical contents.

“We are charged with preserving our environment for future generations; it is a cornerstone of our state’s identity,” said Salomon. 

“While fracking is not currently done in Washington, it is important that we acted preventatively here. If the use of fracking were to be established, oil companies and lobbyists would make it very hard to curtail.”
