California to sue administration over fracking rule repeal

California's attorney general is suing the Trump administration for rolling back a fracking rule that he says is designed to protect public health and the environment. 

The latest suit challenges the federal Bureau of Land Management's rollback of a major rule last month governing fracking, which cracks open underground oil and gas deposits with pressurized water, sand and chemicals. The rule would require drilling companies to disclose the chemicals they use for fracking.

California says the administration broke the law by not following required procedures including getting public comment.

soooooooooo tired of this. Regulate your own state. Why must we look to the feds to do everything?  Maybe fracking in California will someday cause it to crack off from the United States and quietly slip into the ocean... Then maybe it could become its own country.

California regulatory had authority over fracking BEFORE the BLM rule, and with its withdraw, the authority goes back to the state.

If fracking happens in Yosemite, its under California rules.

California not only overtaxes its citizens but also waste their money on stupid litigation.

It's almost like how Texas sued Obama every time he picked up a pen.
