Concerned Citizens of St. Tammany Still Steadfast Against Fracking

The head of the group Concerned Citizens of St. Tammany says the group's goal - to keep fracking out of St. Tammany Parish - hasn't changed despite neighboring Tangipahoa Parish's positive experiences with that method of oil drilling.

In an interview with Denny Schaffer Friday, Rick Franzo said, "We still firmly believe it doesn't belong here in St. Tammany Parish, and we're gonna do everything we can to try to stop it."

Franzo says suing to stop fracking is an option.

"We're looking at options, that's certainly on the table," Franzo said.

He says right now the group is waiting to see if Helis Oil and Gas gets the permits it needs to begin drilling and what parish officials will do before deciding its next move.
