Weekend earthquake swarm in OK

The US state of Oklahoma experienced a swarm of at least 41 earthquakes over this past weekend - 29 of them on Sunday, March 30, including the strongest quakes of 2014. To say nothing of over 135 earthquakes that the Sooner State has experienced in the past month. 

Interstate consultations on fracking's earthquake risks are clearly not enough.  Will this weekend's events propel immediate state and federal regulations on wastewater injection and earthquake risk? And perhaps on the risks of earthquakes that are related to fracking itself?

And if not - why not?
