Gov. Fallin signs bill banning local fracking restrictions

 Oklahoma City, OK_Governor Mary Fallin has signed a bill that would no longer allow cities and counties to ban fracking, or other oil and gas operations within their boundaries.
The bill was supported by the oil and gas industry, but fiercely opposed by many cities and environmental groups.
However, the governor and other Republican supporters say it simply reaffirms the Oklahoma Corporation Commission as the regulator of the oil and gas industry.
They say it also prevents inconsistent regulations across the state.
