MoveOn members mobilize against state fracking bill
Online Staff Report
Thursday, May 30, MoveOn members from Illinois will be mobilizing as part of a statewide day of action against hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as “fracking.”
Activists are urging their state legislators and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D) to oppose Senate Bill 1715, unless a one-year moratorium and the creation of a task force to study the effects of fracking in the Illinois area added into the bill.
MoveOn.org members in Illinois launched targeted local campaigns opposing hydraulic fracturing in 32 out of the 118 total State House districts. S.B. 1715 is likely to be voted on in the State House before the legislative season ends Friday, May 31.
