Natural gas drilling in western Maryland is among the environmental issues facing state lawmakers again as the Maryland General Assembly gathers Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013. Montgomery County Delegate Heather Mizeur said she is seeking a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing for natural gas until a study called for in an executive order by the governor is fully completed. However, state lawmakers have not been able to decide how to pay for the study and that question will again be before them. (AP Photo/Ralph Wilson, File)
