Hydraulic Fracturing Prohibition Bill (A. 7218 ) This bill would prohibit the issuance of permits for all oil and gas wells that employ the extraction technique hydraulic fracturing, based upon overwhelming evidence that demonstrates that fracking can never be “safe”. When one truly understands what fracking entails and the threats this industry poses to our water, health, communities, home values and our local economies, it is hard to believe we are even considering this in New York State.
Between now and the end of session, New Yorkers Against Fracking will be sending out a number of emails as opportunities for effective action arise. Please take whatever time you can to make calls, attend events and show your support. Thanks to your incredible work, this coalition has made a real difference in the debate on fracking. If we can keep building the momentum for just a little longer, a real break-through may be just around the corner!
