The public has an opportunity to weigh in on a bill that would allow landfills in West Virginia to increase capacity to accept waste and cuttings from natural gas horizontal drilling.
 
The House of Delegates Judiciary Committee has scheduled a public hearing on the bill for 5 p.m. Monday in the House Chamber at the Capitol.
 
House Energy Committee chairman Kevin Craig and Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Randy Huffman say landfills are the best option for disposal of drilling cuttings.
