Call Gov. Quinn and AG Madigan: Don't Frack Illinois!
Illinois is on the verge of becoming ground zero for hydrofracking – a dangerous extractive process that uses millions of gallons of water and toxic chemicals to fracture layers of rock and release natural gas. The oil industry could be only months away from drilling wells in our backyard.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Governor Pat Quinn helped broker a deal with the oil and gas industry to open up the state to this dangerous process, disguised as regulatory bill HB2615, which is up for a vote in the State House this week.
Can you call Attorney General Madigan and Governor Quinn today, and tell them to put a moratorium on drilling to investigate its full climate and health impacts?
