Vinehout Addresses Frac Sand Mining
Senator Kathleen Vinehout will release a 5-point plan today to improve property owners right to know regarding frac sand mines.
Vinehout's proposals will give adjacent property owners advance notice and the opportunity to be involved in local decisions. Mine owners will protect themselves by having more opportunity to interact with the community and address concerns from neighbors. She says local government will benefit by having a more transparent public process where the interests of all stakeholders are considered.
Vinehout introduces her bills today.
