Sen. Bradley has placed the Fracking ban bill on the agenda for Monday! @ 4:30 pm in Tallahassee.
Please call or email these members of the Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation and urge them to Vote YES on SB 462 Advanced Well Stimulation Treatment by Sen. Dana Young next Monday, February 5. (And be sure to thank Chair Bradley for bringing up the bill!)
BANNING FRACKING WILL PREVENT:
· Wreaking havoc with Florida’s water through excessive and wasteful consumptive use
· Chemical pollution of surface waters and the aquifer
· Human health impacts from toxic chemicals
· Increasing Florida’s dependence on natural gas
FRACKING’S NOT WORTH THE RISK! <
MINERAL RIGHTS ARE NOT AFFECTED BY SB 462
