Californians have already waited far too long for protections from fracking. The only fracking bill to pass the Legislature (SB 4) was severely weakened with last-minute amendments from the oil industry and does not go far enough.
In the absence of adequate legislation to protect Californians from dangerous fracking and acidizing techniques, we ask Governor Brown to use his existing authority to immediately impose a moratorium on fracking and acidizing.
As a California voter, I'm concerned about the health and safety risks we've endured through more than 60 years of unregulated fracking in our state. We have already waited far too long for protection from fracking and acidizing. With bad amendments added at the last minute, SB 4 does not go far enough.
Please impose a moratorium on fracking and acidizing immediately.
