U.S. Rep. John Salazar, already taking heat of late for his no vote on the Waxman-Markey climate change bill, may also be hearing it from his constituents in Third Congressional District over his lack of support for Congresswoman Diana DeGette’s FRAC Act.

Two-thirds of the voters in the mostly rural Third District, which includes most of the natural-gas hotspots on the Western Slope, support the FRAC Act, according to a survey produced for the Western Organization of Resource Councils (WORC) — a group of western agriculture and conservation groups.

Only 22 percent of the voters oppose the legislation, which would strip away a Safe Drinking Water Act exemption for the process of hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) that was granted under the Bush administration in 2005 and is the only such industrial exemption under the act.
