New York's Highest Court Rules Communities Have Right To Ban Fracking


Hard to see this happening in NC

where everything the state wants to do to screw over an uppity town is fair game. Won't be long before the asshats in Raleigh decide that all zoning should be illegal. Then Art Pope can open one of his slumlord stores anywhere he wants to.

In particular

NC is a Dillon's rule state through and through. The state always could have its way with municipalities.

Until the last year or so, the state showed wise and appropriate restraint. But now Tillis, Berger, Moffitt, Stone, McGrady, Ramsey, Lewis, Apodaca and some others are drunk with power.

"I will have a priority on building relationships with the minority caucus. I want to put substance behind those campaign speeches." -- Thom Tillis, Nov. 5, 2014
