From the Maryland League of Conservation Voters:
As some of you already know, the Senate Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs committee voted narrowly 6-5 last week against the Maryland Hydraulic Fracturing and Right to Know Act of 2013. However, this is not the end of the movement.
If we’re going to win a moratorium on fracking for natural gas in Maryland next year, one thing is certain: we need you. To come out on top, we need to take our statewide grassroots movement straight to the doorsteps of legislators in Annapolis. We need you to maintain the momentum and join us in Annapolis this Wednesday:
Marylanders deserve legal protections against drilling now, while the state investigates the risks to our air, water and climate. We can’t afford the toxic, undrinkable tap water, rural towns overrun with industrial truck traffic and supercharged climate emissions already linked to fracking activity in other states. Also- Center for Health, Environment, and Justice Executive Director and movement hero, Lois Gibbs, just confirmed she will be speaking at the rally!
Hope to see you there!
