Gov. McCrory To Take Action on 38 Bills Next Week

Contact him NOW to Veto “Regulatory Reform” (House Bill 74) and “Keep Jordan Lake Dirty” (Senate Bill 515) legislation!

Thanks to your advocacy and key Representatives (be sure to thank them!), we’ve fended off some of the most damaging legislation on fracking this year!

  • The moratorium on fracking permits is still in place.
  • Deep injection of fracking wastes into aquifers was NOT approved
  • The moratorium on fracking permits is still in place; 2) Deep injection of fracking wastes into aquifers was NOT approved,
  • Landmen who contact landowners to lease mineral rights will STILL have to be registered and tracked,
  • NC still has a chance to pass chemical disclosure rules that aren’t the weakest in the nation!

However, the legislature has approved other damaging legislation this year! With Gov. McCrory’s final decisions coming next week on 38 bills on his desk, NOW is the time to call (919-814-2000) or e-mail the Governor to ask him to veto HB74, as well as Senate Bill 515!

House Bill 74 (“2013 Regulatory Reform Act”)McCrory expressed concerns about the regulatory reform bill. It guts landfill protections and allows contamination all the way to property boundaries, among dozens of damaging provisions. Our state is HEAVILY dependent on groundwater for millions of residents and economic development.

Senate Bill 515 (ironically called the “Jordan Lake Water Quality Act”) will delay the Jordan Lake rules while funding a demonstration to see if the dirty lake water can be cleaned up by aeration devices instead of stopping pollution at its upstream sources. It’s expensive, has NO scientific basis for use in a large lake, and it’s bad for economic development and recreation, too. The Lake growing more visibly polluted with delays!

Remember what we accomplished last year with a big wave of contacts to the Governor’s office Senate Bill 820, even after the Governor had taken a fracking industry tour of Pennsyslvania? We can do that again to stop these terrible bills!! call (919-814-2000) or e-mail TODAY!
