New Jersey Office of Legislative Services Opinion on Fracking and the Dormant Commerce Clause

In a post several weeks ago I noted that New Jersey Governor Christie had vetoed a hydraulic fracturing wastewater ban in the state approved by the New Jersey Legislature on grounds that the ban violated the Dormant Commerce Clause.  I also noted news reports that the non-partisan New Jersey Office of Legislative Services had drafted a memorandum opining on the subject, but obtaining the memorandum proved elusive and I mentioned I would share when I received it.  Today I found a copy at a website, and also directly linked here.  The site is a little fussy.  If you can't download it, feel free to contact me and I'll send you the memorandum.
