URGENT – Call your PA Senator from now through Tuesday!
Oppose PA SB411, the Acid Mine Drainage in Fracking Bill!
Please call or email your Pennsylvania State Senator right now to tell him or her not to vote for PA SB411.
SB411 provides overly broad immunity to drillers, letting them off the hook if they pollute streams or soil with highly toxic fracking wastewater, as long as that toxic waste includes any amount of AMD (acid mine drainage) water.
What’s worse, proposed gas rules now open for public comment would allow untreated AMD to be stored in open freshwater impoundments used in fracking and drilling. But those impoundments are not designed to hold hazardous liquids, adding another way that this pollution can be let loose into the environment.
Please email or call your PA State Senator now. The vote is expected today, Monday, Jan. 13th, but keep calling through Tuesday…
