UPDATE, 5/28, 3:30: AN OJB POLITICAL INTELLIGENCE SOURCE NOW TELLS US THAT SEN. LOU CORREA — WHOSE DISTRICT INCLUDES FRACKING BUT WHO ALSO GETS BIG DONATIONS FROM BIG OIL — MAY BE THE SWING VOTE! SO IF YOU’RE INTERESTED, CALL!
The fracking moratorium bill, SB 1132, cleared its last committee last week and will be voted on by the full Senate this week.
We don’t know yet if we have the votes to pass the bill — but we know we’re close. So we need to turn up the heat on senators who haven’t committed to voting ‘yes’ on this critically important bill.
It’s urgent that you make a call today and urge your senator, Robert Huff, to stand up to the fracking industry and support the moratorium bill. Your call really could be the difference between success and failure when the Senate votes this week.
Last week, the fracking fight was rocked by the bombshell news that the Energy Information Administration is slashing its estimates of how much oil could be recovered from the Monterey Shale by an astonishing 96 percent.
This is a political game-changer and should be the final nail in the coffin for the oil industry’s misguided assertion that fracking is key to California’s prosperity.
That means there’s all the more reason for our leaders to halt fracking in California while we study the consequences and ensure that public health and the climate are protected.
A recent poll found that an incredible 68 percent of Californians support a moratorium on fracking. But SB 1132 is Public Enemy Number One for the oil industry, which is spending big to kill it, so we need to keep the pressure on our legislators.
The California Senate will vote on a fracking moratorium bill this week. Your senator, Robert Huff, could be the decisive vote, so it’s urgent that you call today.
Make the Call : Sen.Robert Huff (916) 651-4029
Hi, my name is …… and I’m a constituent from ….. I’m calling to urge Senator Huff to support SB 1132, the fracking moratorium bill.
Fracking is a major threat to our air, water and climate. If we don’t stop it now, fracking will expand dramatically in California and do even more damage to our state.
The most important thing Senator Huff can do to protect us from fracking is vote for SB 1132. I strongly urge the senator to be a champion for public health and the climate by supporting it!
