States cannot be trusted to do what is right for their constituents. Just look at those states who refused to expand Medicaid so their constituents could have affordable healthcare, and look at those states that continuously deregulate gun laws so anyone can purchase any gun and bring those guns into states that are working hard to stop mass shootings and then wreak havoc. No. Fracking is dangerous and destroys the environment, poisons our water and should therefore be heavily regulated by the federal government so ALL states are on the same page. Frankly, I think fracking should be completely outlawed but because it isn't, it should be heavily regulated by the federal government.
