WE CAN STOP FRACKING IN CALIFORNIA
The bill imposes a moratorium on Fracking in California that can only be lifted by legislative action. The bill comes up for a vote before the Assembly Natural Resources Committee on April 29.
We are on the threshold of banning it sooner than perhaps we all may expect. However, there is one first step. It has been agreed upon by most major California environmental agencies, to first call for a “Moratorium” on fracking. This is a legal first step to actually scientifically document the lethal toxicity associated with fracking. This has never been done before -EVER! We owe it to future generations to show them visible documentation and records, to warn them to NEVER repeat these mistakes ever again. We then have a legal foot to stand on, to Ban it Forever! — Aura Walker

Fracking Moratorium Bill AB 1301 Attracts Support From: Nurses, Farmers, Cancer Group, California Nurses Association, Family Farm Defenders, Breast Cancer Action are Among More Than 100 Groups Backing A.B. 1301 SACRAMENTO, Calif.
This state assembly bill would halt hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in California and has won support from the Family Farm Defenders, Aromas Cares for Our Environment, Frack-Free Culver City, Baldwin Hills Oil Watch and more than 100 other organizations representing labor, farmers, public health professionals and local residents concerned about lethal fracking pollution in their communities.
In a letter delivered to state legislators, the groups expressed strong support for Assemblymember Richard Bloom’s A.B. 1301, which would place a moratorium on fracking and mandate a review of the controversial practice’s health and environmental dangers. “The broad and diverse support for A.B. 1301, the strongest fracking bill introduced this session, speaks volumes to the fact that Californians are deeply concerned about the adverse health and economic impacts fracking poses to our great state,” said Kristin Lynch of Food & Water Watch.
