Lynn Johnson: Big-money deals

June 26, 2014 

Our legislature is removing tax breaks for the movie industry, which to my knowledge has done no harm to the environment, and giving them to the gas companies for fracking, which involves cancer-causing chemicals that the legislators made it illegal to disclose. Further, fracking may taint groundwater, and events in Texas indicate that it may also contribute to earthquakes.

Whose side are they on?
