Senate passes fracking bill, but N.C. may be less rich in gas

RALEIGH — The state Senate approved the legalization of fracking in North Carolina on Wednesday just hours after the U.S. Geological Survey issued an estimate that the state has far less gas than earlier assessments showed.

The bill now goes to the state House, where it is widely expected to be approved by the Republican-led legislature.
