Override the Veto of the Fracking Waste Ban

 

OVERRIDE THE VETO!
BAN FRACKING WASTE DUMPING

Waste from drilling and fracking for shale gas has been shown to contain radioactive material and other known carcinogens. In Pennsylvania radioactive fracking wastewater has reportedly been discharged into waterways. To prevent this from happening in New Jersey, we need to act now!

Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection is reporting that facilities Kearny, Carteret, and Elizabeth have been shipped fracking waste.

Governor Christie vetoed the fracking waste ban, which was passed by the Senate and Assembly with bipartisan support. With your help, we have a real chance to make sure that fracking, and the ill effects associated with it, are never allowed in our state.

PLEASE CALL THESE LEGISLATIVE LEADERS:
Senate President Sweeney: (856) 251-9801
Assembly Speaker Oliver: (973) 395-1166

TALKING POINTS

  • As legislative leaders we need you to lead on protecting NJ’s waterways from fracking waste by calling a vote to override the Governor’s veto of A575/S253 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.
