MIDDLETON (AP) - A former official with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says Wisconsin can remain the leading supplier of sand for the nation's fracking boom as long as the state imposes and enforces strong regulations.

He told a business convention in Middleton that state regulators and fracking companies have to commit to maximum transparency.
