While the shale oil and gas boom taking place across the U.S. hasn’t hit Illinois with full force yet, many residents and business leaders within the state are becoming aware of the economic potential that energy extraction via fracking can unleash.

The bill is expected to allow energy companies to expand operations within the state.
