There could actually be some movement on getting the fracking industry up in Illinois.  A legislative panel is expected to approve the regulatory rules today.  If that happens, businesses will be allowed to set up shop and pull oil and gas from large rocks that are buried deep underground. Those who support fracking are hoping it leads to a major oil boom. They say that could bring in a major cash flow for the state and put thousands of people to work.  Opponents fought the idea of fracking because they say there are too many health risks associated with it.
