White House met 4 times with industry, once with enviros on disclosure rules
The Interior Department's rollout of hydraulic fracturing disclosure rules for public lands late last week was preceded by a bevy of White House meetings between President Obama's aides and industry lobbyists. There was also one meeting with environmental groups in the lead-up to Friday's announcement, White House records show. But administration officials met with four different industry groups in February, March and April.
