Pa. grand jury report on fracking: DEP failed to protect public health

Pa. did not protect people from fracking dangers

A Pennsylvania grand jury report two years in the making slammed the  Department of Environmental Protection for failing to protect the public  from the health effects of fracking.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh  Shapiro, who sent investigators across the state to investigate the  industry, announced the findings at a press conference Thursday in  Harrisburg. The grand jury said the risk of fracking should fall  on the industry and on regulators but DEP “did not take sufficient  action in response to the fracking boom.”
