We need your help right now. Please tell Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran and Florida House Majority Leader Ray Rodrigues to allow HB451 - the fracking ban bill – to be heard in its first committee.
We are getting reports that next week is the final week for initial bills to be placed on the committee agenda. This important piece of legislation has not been placed on an upcoming agenda and deserves to be heard.
Its companion, the Senate fracking ban bill, was heard in its first committee on Tuesday, March 7 and passed unanimously to move forward to the Appropriations Subcommittee on the Environment and Natural Resources. However, leadership in the House of Representatives is preventing the bill (HB 451) from being heard in its first committee.
This is not acceptable. We cannot let this bill die based on Leadership’s refusal to give it a fair hearing.
