The four local anti-fracking initiatives approved last week by voters in Colorado and Ohio should have roughly the same impact as outlawing surfing in Denver or cliff-diving in Cleveland.
The only Ohio city to approve the anti-fracking "community bill of rights" was Oberlin, a liberal college town where no oil and gas drilling or hydraulic fracturing is taking place, said Mike Chadsey, Ohio Oil and Gas Association spokesman.
"There's definitely no shale development in the entire county, much less in the city of Oberlin," said Mr. Chadsey. "I would say this was an easy win for these groups where you have a small liberal-arts college town with lots of students."
