Yesterday OSFR President requested of the Baker Co. Board of County Commissioners that they support a state-wide resolution to ban fracking. She presented a power point explanation of what fracking is and what its dangers are. The item was on the agenda as an “Information Only” item, and not an “Action item,” so a vote was not taken. It remains on the agenda, however, for the next meeting on March 17, at 5:00 pm. Timing is everything and the Board recognized this is in support of SB166 and HB169 and they need to make a decision fairly quickly.
Please try to attend the March 17 meeting to encourage the board to make the right decision on this matter.
