On Friday, the Vermont legislature approved a ban on fracking. Governor Shumlin will sign the bill soon, giving the country its first statewide ban on fracking.
This is a huge moment. As the first state to ban the dangerous process, Vermont has set an important precedent.
New York could -- and should -- be next. There's momentum on our side. Just last week, we joined a coalition of groups to deliver more than 200,000 petition signatures calling for a ban. Now all it will take is leadership from Governor Cuomo.
Sign our petition to urge Governor Cuomo to ban fracking in New York.
