Californians Want a Moratorium on Fracking
(Disclaimer: Partner logos are distributed throughout webpage)
Recently, the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter formed a Fracking Action Committee. Until fracking is proven safe in our communities and ecosystems, our goals are to:
1) Support Sierra Club California's efforts to pass a state-wide moratorium on fracking through Senate Bill 1132 (Mitchell & Leno) which is in-line with
2) Work with Santa Clara County Supervisors to discuss adopting an ordinance and/or a moratorium until one is adopted
3) Support our partner, San Benito Rising, on their fracking campaign
4) Educate and empower people in our Chapter with knowledge on what's happening in their communities and in California, what rights they have, and to avoid having to protest unsafe fracking

HELP CALIFORNIA BECOME FRACK-FREE!
The Sierra Club has been urging legislation that would impose a moratorium on extreme well stimulation, including fracking, in California.
In spite of political pressures, such a bill was recently introduced in the CA Senate. Information on this landmark bill, SB 1132 is available at http://www.frackfreecali.org. There you can get the details of this proposed bill and review the dangers involved in fracking.
The authors, Senators Mitchell and Leno, need your help garner support for their bill. Please write or phone your senator (see below) to urge their support of this important legislation.
