    We should do all we can to discourage this practice in New Jersey and throughout the nation. Companies are injecting toxic substances into the groundwater and not disclosing the composition of those mixtures. This bill does not go far enough. We should prohibit the transportation of fracking waste in the state and put a heavy tax on natural gas that was obtained via this deleterious practice. Our energy investments should be in clean, renewable energy, not the expensive dirty fossil fuels of the past.
