Fracking ban Press Conference
It is that time of year again, when Florida citizens urge our legislators to pass a bill banning fracking in Florida. We know residents in Florida want fracking banned by law. Are you with us? Let’s make this the year! Floridians Against Fracking needs you to demonstrate strong public support for a ban on fracking by attending a very important press conference next Tuesday. This will be the kick-off for the companion bills to ban fracking in Florida that Senator Young (R – Hillsborough) and Representative Peters (R- Pinellas) will announce next Tuesday, October 10, in Tallahassee, FL.
We need to support these legislative champions who are fighting to do the right thing for our state. Come to the Capitol next week and help get this bill passed in the House and Senate this year. Residents in Florida, ground zero for climate impacts, know a legislative ban on fracking and transition to clean renewable energy is essential policy that is mirrored around the globe. Join your fellow Sierra Club members and many other statewide groups to stand up for these legislators and the fracking ban. Then visit your legislators to get them on board as co-sponsors of these important and crucial bills. Florida’s clean water, air, and land depend on all of us. Please do your part!
