Groups differ on economic impact of fracking ...

I'm quoted at the end. (Reasonably well ... I was interviewed at home and I was managing my children at the time.  It wasn't my best interview, so I'm happy the quote turned out OK.)

An excerpt:
Energy In Depth Ohio, the public-relations arm for the state’s oil and gas industry, touted the findings on its website. Shawn Bennett, the group’s field director, posted a blog entry under the heading “New Report Shows Major Growth in Ohio Shale Jobs” and praised the “tremendous 30 percent” bump in core employment.
But not everybody saw those numbers as such a success.
“Thirty percent of a few thousand jobs is not that many,” said Amanda Woodrum, a researcher for Policy Matters Ohio.
