Texas fracking bill passedGovernor Rick Perry has signed a bill requiring gas drillers to publically disclosed the chemicals used in hydraulic facturing, or fracking. That's when water and chemicals are injected into the ground to crack the shale and extract the natural gas.

Ed Ireland with the Barnett Shale Energy Education Council says the industry supports the bill.
Ireland: Once people can go to the database and see exactly what chemicals are used and in what quantity that it will help clear up the debate.

The natural gas industry says fracking is safe and does not contaminate groundwater.
