A published letter to the editor regarding the “Fracking: How risky?” Editorial published on May 26 in the LA Times. The letter was written by PSR-LA member, Robert Dodge, M.D. and PSR-LA General Counsel, Angela Johnson Meszaros.
Yesterday, California’s Assembly heard three bills that called for a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing: AB 649 by Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian, AB 1301 by Assemblyman Richard Bloom, and AB 1323 by Assemblywoman Holly Mitchell. PSR-LA supports all three of these authors and their bills.
Today, PSR-LA is launching our “Don’t Gag Docs” campaign! The purpose of the effort is to raise awareness about the big push by the oil and gas industry to have the content of the chemical fracking cocktail used in fracking treated as a “trade secret.”
