Statement from Governor Quinn on House Committee Passage of Senate Bill 1715

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement regarding the Illinois House Executive Committee’s passage of Senate Bill 1715 – the Hydraulic Fracturing Regulation Act.

“Many months ago I directed my staff to bring together a coalition of legislators, labor, industry and advocates to develop a hydraulic fracturing bill that would set a new national standard for environmental protection and job creation potential.

“Today, I commend the members of the Illinois House Executive Committee who voted to put this proposal on the path to becoming law in Illinois.

“I look forward to continuing to work with this broad coalition to swiftly pass this bill through the Illinois House and Senate, and unlock the potential for thousands of jobs in Southern Illinois.”
