RALEIGH — Hundreds attended a public meeting Wednesday in Raleigh on rules for hydraulic fracturing drilling in North Carolina, with many voicing opposition and some even breaking into anti-fracking songs at the podium.

Nearly 400 people filled an auditorium at North Carolina State University for the first of four meetings during a comment period that lasts until the end of September. The state Mining and Energy Commission will analyze comments and consider revisions to the rules, which then must undergo a fiscal review before legislators have the final say.
