Rushed fracking bill puts clean drinking water at risk

“The bottom line is that this rushed fracking legislation prioritizes the profit margins of big out-of-state energy companies over the clean drinking water of working families in North Carolina. All we have asked is that the Governor and his friends in the legislature slow down to make certain that our drinking water won’t be threatened, as it was after the recent coal ash spill. But today – before we have even cleaned the ash from our rivers – they decided to rush through high-risk legislation to allow out-of-state corporations to begin fracking, before we know drinking water will be protected. Gambling with the cleanliness of drinking water in order to line the pockets of oil company CEOs is shortsighted and wrong,” said Senate Democratic Leader Dan Blue.
