The Ferlo Amendment read like this:

"and inserting:
on the method of gas and oil and gas well operations 
regulated by this chapter or attempt to accomplish the
purposes of this chapter. Nothing in this chapter shall affect
the traditional power of local government to regulate zoning
and land development of oil and gas activities as well as
other aspects, such as the time and the place of operations
to protect the health, safety and welfare of the general public
through ordinances and enactments."
This is how they voted--defeating our local control:
