Professor Lyndon Co-Authored Letter From Law Professors on Fracking Regulations

Professor Lyndon co-authored a letter on April 1 on behalf of ten law professors to the the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission in support of the Commission’s proposed fracking regulations.  The regulations would require corporations to disclose trade secret information, like chemical ingredients, used in fracking activity in Alaska.  The letter presents arguments that trade secrecy claims should not impede access to information considered critical to discussion of important public concerns. You can read the letter here.
