Ban Fracking

From United For Action (unitedforaction.org)

Thanks to all your phone calls, emails and letters, today New York State Assembly passed bill number A 7400 to suspend the issuance of new permits for hydrofracking in New York State until June 1, 2012.
To protect the health of people in New York State and our water, air, and land, it is critical that New York State Senate supports the Assembly bill and passes the same bill S 5592 in the Senate. We need you to take action urgently. Please pick up the phone and
• Call Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos at (518) 455-3171 and email Leader Skelos at skelos@nysenate.gov and tell him to bring the hydrofracking moratorium bill S 5592 to the Senate floor for a vote and pass this bill.
• Call your own Senator find at www.nysenate.gov and email your Senator, and tell your Senator to urge Leader Skelos to bring the hydrofracking moratorium bill S 5592 to the Senate floor for a vote and then vote yes to pass this bill.
After calling the Senate, please call
• Governor Cuomo at 518-474-8390 and email Governor Cuomo at www.governor.ny.gov/contact/GovernorContactForm.php and tell the Governor that he needs to support the hydrofracking moratorium bill and sign it into law.
Please don’t forget to call Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver at 518-455-3791 and your own Assembly Member find at www.assembly.state.ny.us/mem/ and thank them for their leadership in passing the hydrofracking moratorium bill in the Assembly.
Hydrofracking should not be allowed in New York State until we have all the facts and the science to understand how drilling affect our health, water, air and the environment.
We can make this happen when we take action together. Thank you for everything you do.
All the best,
Ling, Amanda, Dave, David, Owen, Sonia and the rest of the team
