House OKs bills to speed oil, gas drilling
FILE - In this June 25, 2012 file photo, a crew works on a gas drilling rig at a well site for shale based natural gas in Zelienople, Pa. The Republican-controlled House is considering three energy bills aimed at speeding up drilling for oil and natural gas. Bills expected to win approval Wednesday would restrict the Interior Department from enforcing proposed rules to regulate hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, on public lands and set strict deadlines for federal approval of oil and gas permits.
