Take action

Senate Bill 76 has moved to the House…call your Representatives as soon as possible

Contact your Representative now! – here’s where to find them by county!

Key reasons to contact your Representatives to stop this bill that makes the “rush to frack” even more dangerous:

  • Last year’s Senate Bill 820, which started the process of developing regulations for fracking, required one final vote of approval after seeing the regulations, BEFORE permitting could start. SB76 ignores this reasonable step and lets permitting start by default.
  • It would put the livelihood of NC fishermen and coastal tourism at risk by promoting offshore oil and gas drilling
  • It removes the requirement for “landmen” to register in North Carolina, leaving property owners vulnerable, and limiting public access to records about companies operating in NC
  • Perhaps the most damaging of all, it would legalize deep injection of oil and gas wastes, even worse than fracking, increasing the chance of earthquakes, spills and contamination in areas far from where fracking would occur, probably coastal areas!

Republican Representative Hager has stated that he is very concerned, too.

Here’s where to find your legislators’ contact info, listed by county. Simply click on the link to your Representative’s name to get contact information to reach them in Raleigh Monday night through Thursday noon, or their home district offices on Friday and Monday! Call both, just to make sure they know how you feel.
