Maryland One Year Closer to Fracking
Statement by Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch
WASHINGTON - March 5 - “The death of the bill to ban fracking in Maryland, Senate Bill 514, today brings Maryland one year closer to fracking.
“It's outrageous that Maryland officials continue to believe that we can study fracking and somehow make it safe. By killing the bill, the Senate leadership just gave a huge gift to the oil and gas industry, which is waiting on Maryland’s doorstep.
“We’ll continue to work to ban fracking in Maryland and support policies that lead to development of renewables over environmentally damaging fossil fuels."
