The Houston Chronicle reports on a new study about the growth of campaign contributions by the hydraulic fracturing industry.
The paper describes the report by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. From the story:
"The hydraulic fracturing industry, defined as trade groups that support fracturing and companies that operate fractured wells, contributed nearly $12 million to House and Senate candidates during the 2012 election cycle, according to the report released this week. That grew from $4.3 million eight years earlier."
