    4. Victory (Now we need to double our efforts for a June 14th Assembly vote!)

      Victory - thanks to all of you! The NJ Senate Environment Committee passed S-253, the Frack Waste Ban Bill, with a unanimous bi-partisan vote on Thursday as environmental groups testified about the crucial need to protect our drinking water and communities from this toxic waste. Now the Assembly Environment Committee needs to vote on the bill so keep the pressure on. We are pushing for a vote on June 14 so the Bill can go to the full Legislature for a vote before the end of the month. and we need to tell all NJ legislators we want them to vote yes to ban frack wastewater and solid waste from being discharged in New Jersey. Please redouble the calls and share this Petition. We are SO CLOSE!

      All hands on deck - please call members of the Senate Environment Committee between now and June 7. We know the industry is pushing hard and is reaching out to members of the committee too so our voices need to be many. All of the legislators on the committee have supported a ban on fracking in the past and we need them to be leaders on this too.

      Tell them:

      I am very happy that you have supported a ban on fracking in the past and we need you to continue your leadership for clean water by voting to pass S253 out of committee to ban frack waste from entering NJ. This waste is radioactive and harmful
