Senator Rucho’s 2012 Proposal

Hydraulic fracturing could have major impacts on NC's water, air, land, and communities. Contact your senator today!

On April 18th, state Senator Bob Rucho, working with state Representative Mike Hager, unveiled a bill that would establish an entirely new bureaucracy – an oil and gas commission – and legalize fracking this summer, with a brief moratorium in place while rules are crafted. Local ordinances that prohibit or place restrictions on oil and gas exploration and development activities would also be declared invalid if this bill comes to law.

Contact your state Senator and Representative today and urge them not to support Sen. Rucho’s proposed legislation on hydraulic fracturing. Legalizing fracking now has no near term benefits, threatens NC landowners and taxpayers, does not ensure drilling would be done safely, and is downright irresponsible. Learn about what the proposed bill would do.
