PostSubject: Ill. passes nation's toughest fracking regulations   Sat Jun 01, 2013 8:26 pm

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois came a giant step closer to approving the nation's strictest regulations for high-volume oil and gas drilling on Friday, as lawmakers approved a measure they hoped would create thousands of jobs in economically depressed areas of southern Illinois.

The Senate passed the legislation 52-3, one day after it was overwhelmingly approved in the other chamber. Gov. Pat Quinn promised to sign it, calling the legislation a "shot in the arm for many communities."

The legislation was crafted with the help of industry and some environmental groups - an unusual collaboration that has been touted as a potential model for other states.
