Over 200 rallied at the State House in support of the bill to ban fracking waste in NJ on June 14. Fifteen percent (30 persons) were Unitarian Universalists – including nine UU ministers! For a relatively small network, we certainly carry a lot of impact. Reverend Craig Hirshberg, Executive Director of the UULMNJ testified at the Environment Hearing in favor of a bill banning fracking waste in NJ. The bill was passed out of committee. Here’s where your help is needed:
CALL Senate President Sweeney: (888) 793 – 4597 and Assembly Speaker Oliver: (866) 582-4813 to request that A575/S253 be posted for a vote this week! The NJ Legislature will take summer recess beginning June 30.
– As a legislative leader we need you to lead on protecting NJ’s waterways from fracking by posting A575/S253 for a vote and making sure it passes.
– Fracking waste treatment is a threat to our drinking water and should be banned.
– Radioactive fracking waste has been discharged into Pennsylvania’s waterways and we can’t allow it here.
