Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) today applauded a Sept. 13th vote by the Delaware River Basin Commission to move forward with drafting rules and regulations for banning fracking in the basin. Beck has sponsored legislation establishing a moratorium on the practice of hydraulic fracturing in New Jersey.

“I have heard from many residents over the years who are very concerned about the safety and environmental consequences of fracking,” Senator Beck said. “The Delaware River Basin supplies water to millions of people, including many families right here in New Jersey. Allowing oil and gas drilling anywhere near this area is a risk we cannot afford to take.”

“As a staunch advocate for keeping our waterways clean and contaminant-free, I am pleased to see that the DRBC is willing to consider a permanent ban on fracking in the basin,” Beck continued. “It’s the right call and I hope that the commission will follow through and enact these protections as soon as possible.”
