FILE - In this March 26, 2012 file photo, author Sandra Steingraber speaks during a New Yorkers Against Fracking news conference in Albany, N.Y. As thousands around the country mobilize for and against hydraulic fracturing, industry and some environmental groups in Illinois have come together to draft regulations both sides could live with. Steingraber, an Illinois native and founder of New Yorkers Against Fracking, believes Illinois environmentalists caved in when they should have pushed harder to block fracking.
