Sanders: Ban hydraulic fracturing nationwide

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), seeking to become the Democratic Party’s candidate in this year’s presidential election, has called for a nationwide ban on hydraulic fracturing.

In a press statement, he contrasted his stand with “Hillary Clinton’s shifting stand on the extreme and risky method of drilling for oil and gas.”

Clinton, a former secretary of state and senator from New York, leads Sanders in the Democratic primary campaign.

Sanders on Apr. 11 released a television advertisement entitled “No Fracking Anywhere.”
