Info. isn’t up on the site about the vote, but will probably appear in the Journals soon.

This is a huge win for Californians threatened by fracking pollution,” said Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity. “These bills will protect the air we breathe and the water we drink from cancer-causing chemicals and other fracking pollutants. That’s why a fracking moratorium is supported by nurses, farmers and so many others concerned about our state’s health and environment.”

California used to be a leader in sustainable environmental policies and health. We are taking that place again. Show the way California! Thanks to everyone who voted for this in the California Legislature. You are true heros!
