In their article The Shale Oil and Gas Revolution, Hydraulic Fracturing, and Water Contamination, Professor Merrill and Dean Schizer have made a very thoughtful proposal that has genuine merit and deserves equally thoughtful consideration by states across the country. I have a series of what are essentially random reactions, thoughts, and suggestions, but they all flow from a fundamental position that their suggestions are an excellent model for states to consider as they adopt new or update old regulatory and liability regimes.
