Protect the environment with fracking transparency!
Illinois People’s Action fracking transparency bill — SB3174 — emends the Oil and Gas Act to make information available to the public regarding fracking assessments and movements. Since the Oil and Gas Act of 1951, newer scientific evidence is overwhelming that current fracking practices are polluting water, soil, air, and human health, and must be more closely monitored. Even since the Illinois Hydraulic Fracturing Regulatory Act of 2012, five years ago, what we know about the risks of fracking has changed. The public cannot monitor without accurate information, which is now classified confidential.
This Bill is newly-introduced and needs the support of your legislator. Check HERE to see if your senator is on board, and if not, click HERE to ask them to co-sponsor the bill.
