The cancelling of this meeting means one thing...the commission does not have the votes yet to rubber stamp Hydraulic Fracturing. Despite the millions of dollars of Propaganda thrown up onto the airwaves by the likes of Exxon's natural gas division, despite the Delaware River Basin Commissions unscrupulous scheduling of the vote at the very beginning of the Thanksgiving week, they could not muster enough support to vote in favor of allowing Hydraulic Fracturing in this very delicate and important basin, have postponed the meeting to do more arm twisting...or perhaps certain members of the commission are holding out for bigger promises (and money) from the industry.
