Mora County, New Mexico, was one of the first local governments to ban hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. The ban set off a firestorm of controversy. Although most people in this rural, northern New Mexico county are opposed to oil and gas development, many felt the ban was pushed down their throat by outside interests hoping to set a legal precedent. The county learned the hard way that the ban was unconstitutional and that rigorous regulation was the better way to go, at least at this time in history. "Ban" or "Regulate"? Mora County's Path to the Answer is a collection of essays from La Jicarita, an online journal of environmental politics, that documents the controversy. Author Kay Matthews is a longtime norteño journalist and activist.
