NC Energy Panel Meeting Again In Raleigh
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) â¿¿ Members of a panel directed by the Legislature to develop regulations that would allow for expanded North Carolina inland energy exploration are still developing their plan to complete their tasks.
The North Carolina Mining and Energy Commission scheduled its third meeting for Friday at a state building in downtown Raleigh.
The former state mining commission was reconstituted last summer to address potential exploration methods such as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Lawmakers want new regulations in place by October 2014. The Legislature would have to act again before permits could be granted.
Lee County commissioner Jim Womack was elected panel chairman last month. Some environmental groups are concerned about Womack's support for fracking.The panel Friday was supposed to elect a vice chairman, set up committees and discuss a work plan.
