Lawmakers look for link between fracking, earthquakes

Posted: Updated:
AZLE, Texas - Members of the Texas House of Representatives will launch an inquiry into a series of small earthquakes northwest of Fort Worth. They'll be looking for a possible link to oil and gas drilling.

Some experts believe the process of extracting gas by injecting fluid into the ground under high pressure is linked to the quakes in the Azle area.

The committee is working with the Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates the oil and gas industry.
