We WON Round 2! Today 2/28/14, the City of LA Unanimously voted to place a Moratorium on Fracking for the City. Now the City District Attorney has to draft the language. With the supervision of Council Men Paul Koretz and Mike Bonin. Special thanks to these two environmental HERO’s for the People. Truly! They deserve a lot of praise. They are on top of the proper language. Now it is in their hands. I implicitly trust them to finalize this process. It goes to Review two more times with a final vote on the language. The ball is moving in the right direction.
Today, LA Basically voted to Ban Fracking! Thank You to all of you who called and used your voice to let them know how you feel about this. The Council listened to you! Including Mitchell Englander! Praise due! I am so grateful.
