SB 706 (Chafin) was withdrawn by the patron for any further consideration during the current legislative session. SB 706 would have amended the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by excluding as trade secrets the types of chemicals that may be used in the process of hydraulic fracturing (or fracking). Its House companion measure, HB 1389 (Robinson), was carried over to the 2017 legislative session. VACo opposed these bills.
