Fracking moratorium bill defeated by oil industry lobby
by Dan Bacher
The statewide coalition Californians Against Fracking said, "Despite polls showing a majority of Californians in favor of banning fracking, today the California Senate failed to pass SB 1132 to place a moratorium on fracking. The vote is disappointing, but not completely unexpected given that the oil industry has spent a whopping $15 million on lobbying activities to defeat the bill and buy influence in Sacramento."
