The Maryland Department of the Environment is in the process of drafting new regulations that would govern hydraulic fracturing, a drilling process better known as fracking, in western Maryland. Monday night, the agency held a public meeting in Baltimore to discuss the proposed new rules. WYPR's Rachel Baye joined Nathan Sterner to talk about the debate over the issue.
