This is a resource website for keeping people informed about specific topics of interest that are being studied by the League. The current focus is on “hydraulic fracturing”. A committee has been hard at work to develop materials for all League members. The pages here will provide the base for developing a position on “hydraulic fracturing”.

Some League groups have a lot of information and they each have a subpage here. Those with less information are listed on this page.
