Governors' speeches targeted for anti-fracking demonstrations
This winter may mark the height of demonstrations against hydraulic fracturing, if only for the convenience of numerous 2013 kick-off speeches from elected officials across the country. As governors use their State of the State addresses to set policy agendas for the year, residents gather outside to put their own priorities forward. Today in Michigan, activists are making their way to Lansing for a cold protest outside tonight's address from Gov. Rick Snyder (R). Organizers are pushing for an all-out ban on hydraulic fracturing.
