"No Fracking" posters and billboards can be found throughout Mora County, New Mexico.

Mora County, New Mexico told the oil and gas industry "no thanks" this spring when commissioners passed the nation's first county-wide ban on fracking. Due to water safety concerns, much of the rural ranching community supports the ordinance, but some are worried the county is losing a chance to boost its struggling economy.
