State House Speaker Thom Tillis confirmed rumors Tuesday that impatient state lawmakers could attempt to speed up the timetable for natural gas fracking in North Carolina.

The Republican lawmaker said he’s willing to consider such proposals, but also said he’s inclined to let the N.C. Mining & Energy Commission complete its task by the October 2014 deadline set by the state legislature last year.

The commission, created last summer, is responsible for writing three reports, along with about 100 regulations covering such issues as well construction, chemical disclosures, wastewater disposal and property owners’ rights.

“I tend to want to allow those processes time to get the regulatory framework right,” Tillis said during a press conference in Raleigh.

Yes, get it right the first time. Don't let the oil interests push this thing through before people have a chance to respond.

They did not learn anything from all the pollution problems in Pennsylvania and in other states.
They will pollute all drinking water sources.

No need to rush, there'll be plenty of time to pollute the groundwater.
