Help save Florida from fracking!
March 2, 2017
Fracking poses a severe threat to Florida's water, its rivers, its animals, and its people. Now, Florida has a real chance to ban fracking statewide. Bipartisan bills to ban fracking have been filed in both the Florida House and the Senate. However, we need your help to push these bills through the state legislature.
Please call Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran and let him know that the health and environmental impacts of fracking are terribly serious -- and unless a ban on fracking is passed, you won't be spending your money on vacations in Florida any longer.
Call House Speaker Richard Corcoran at 888-925-7006 and urge him to ban fracking statewide -- support House Bill 451.

I urge Speaker Corcoran to support House Bill 451 to ban fracking statewide. Thank you."
