High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing is a public health concern that requires further analysis and regulations to protect Ohioans. Ohio rule and regulations are dangerously lacking for this new horizontal drilling. Currently, SB 315 would even gag physicians from sharing concerns about patients’ exposure to chemicals with their local Health Departments or first responders. We must protect the health and welfare of Ohio's citizens and our children.

      Outrageous to place corporate interests above protecting the public's health. These companies are well aware of the toxic effects of the chemicals that are being used for fracking.

      This is a dangerous process that has and will result in accident, injury and perhaps death. We need to work with medical professionals. Additionally, it is a violation of our rights aas citizens.

      This is important because physicians need to be able to get and to share as much information as possible about the toxic chemicals used in fracking so they can better treat their patients.

      Please Help with my petetition Stop Natural Gas Fracking and clean up the mess created in Texas. We are not to proud that the process was developed here and we may be the first real catastophy from it. They started here 8 years ago. 2004 when gas and oil companies were given carte blanche. Think the gulf oil spill was bad wait til they get nuclear waste spilling in cause the earthquakes we are having in Texas are near a nuclear power plant on the Brazos River which dumps into the gulf.
