Judge denies further court action on oil-gas drilling rule (Listen again)
(2012-01-11)
(KSFR) -
A state district judge has decided to allow New Mexico officials to proceed with hearings on whether to change a controversial rule set in place during the Richardson administration. Gov. Martinez has called for repealing the rule because it puts strict requirements on oil and gas developers on how they must install and use liners in the pits designed to catch wastewater produced during the drilling process.

Eric Jantz of the New Mexico Environmental Law Center says his group lost their attempt to allow further court action on the measure.
