Oppose SB 4 – Stop Fracking and Protect Our Health

By simply permitting and disclosing oil extraction and chemical use in our communities, California will be facilitating and expanding our fossil fuel status quo. Responsible policy would be to stop this harmful and reckless activity by banning fracking and other non-conventional oil extraction because—from a health perspective–the facts demand it.


California Shouldn’t Keep Fracking Chemicals a Secret!

The first of 10 fracking bills pending in the California Legislature this session is SB 4 by by Senator Fran Pavley, which will have a committee hearing on April 9th. PSR-LA opposes SB 4 unless amended remove language that “makes it the policy of the State of California to elevate the financial gain of select oil and gas industry players over the health and environment of the people of California.”
