Three previous hearings in Raleigh, Sanford, and Wentworth drew hundreds of North Carolinians wanting to have their say about the state’s guidelines to drill for oil and natural gas.
Hope Taylor, executive director with Clean Water for North Carolina, has attended all three of the previous public meetings. And Taylor recently joined us on NC Policy Watch’s News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon to discuss some of the concerns that have arisen from the proposed fracking rules.
Click below to hear our interview with Taylor:Friday’s public hearing runs from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Liston B. Ramsey Regional Activity Center ( 92 Catamount Road) in Cullowhee.
