SB 1132, introduced by Senators Holly Mitchell and Mark Leno, would put a moratorium on fracking, acidizing and other oil and gas well stimulation techniques in California. The bill would ensure that no fracking occurs while the state takes a hard look at the numerous risks that fracking poses to our water, air, health, climate and economy. It’s time to protect our communities and our water.

Thanks to the support of Clean Water Action New Jersey members, we had over 50 legislators sign on to co-sponsor the Safe Playing Fields Act (S541/A2143) this year.
Unfortunately, despite these co-sponsors and the support of parents throughout the state, the vote on this bill continues to be delayed. We need to send NJ legislators the message that ignoring children's health is unacceptable. Urge your legislators to pass the bill now.
You know how important our water is in Virginia. From the Shenandoah to the Chesapeake, our streams, lake, and bays provide innumerable environmental, social, and economic benefits.

Many of these waterways are already imperiled and this proposal would threaten them even more! Click here to take action to protect the Tidewater region now!
Kingston in 2008. Lake Michigan in 2011. North Carolina in 2014. None of these toxic coal ash spills should have happened, but because of decades of lax regulations, they did. Take action today and tell the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that you are fed up with coal-burning power plants poisoning our water with lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and other nasty chemicals - click here!
