Drillers Not Required to Disclose Chemicals Used - Help Change That

Despite risks of drinking water contamination, chemicals used in the natural gas drilling process called "hydraulic fracturing" continue to go unchecked and unregulated.

Ask your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor the Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals Act, or "FRAC Act" (H.R. 2766 and S. 1215), which would require companies to make public the chemicals they put underground near our water sources, and regulate hydraulic fracturing under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
