On April 12, 2012, the Vermont Senate Natural Resources and Energy Committee voted unanimously for a bill that would ban hydraulic fracturing for natural gas in the state, as well as prohibit collection, storage, or treatment of fracking wastewater in the state. The bill needed to be reconciled with the House before becoming law.[1]

On May 4, 2012 the Vermont House of Representatives voted 103-36 in favor of banning hydraulic fracturing.[2]

The ban was signed into law on May 17, 2012, making Vermont the first state in the nation to ban fracking.[3]
