On Wednesday, the California Senate voted 17 to 18 against SB 1054, which would have required notification to nearby property owners of planned fracking operations.  See the April 19, 2012, blog post for more details on the bill.  The Senate granted the bill “reconsideration”, which would allow another vote before Friday’s deadline for bill advancement.
