BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- Fracking can produce clean energy and good jobs, or it can produce dirty fuel and health problems, depending on who one asks.

Hydraulic fracturing drills into the ground and uses chemicals on the rock below, to produce natural gas.
Delegate Wendell Bietzel of Allegany and Garrett Counties, says fracking can produce good jobs. Land owners who lease their property to fracking companies can benefit, too.
