Annotation: The core of this report is a catalog of a range of state regulations -- 25 regulatory elements in all -- relevant to shale gas, across 31 states with actual or potential shale gas production. These data are an important new resource for understanding how states are managing the risks of shale gas development. The primary aim is to give a broad overview of the similarities and differences among the states' regulations.
