CREDO Anti-Fracking Activists Cheer Advance of Fracking Moratorium Bill

WASHINGTON - Following the passage of SB 1132 in the Natural Resources & Water Committee today, CREDO, a progressive organization working to stop fracking in California, reacted to the development:

"This vote is a wake up call for Governor Brown," said Zack Malitz, CREDO's campaign manager. "Every day more elected officials in California go on the record in support of a moratorium on fracking, putting enormous pressure on Governor Brown to split with Big Oil and return to the climate leadership he showed earlier in his political career."

CREDO has been working to gain support within the California State Legislature for SB 1132 -- a bill that will halt fracking in the state. CREDO members have put in hundreds of calls to local lawmakers and submitted 21,626 letters of support for the bill. As the bill heads to the Environmental Quality Committee for its next vote on April 30th -- CREDO will be ramping up its campaign by putting in more calls and letters of support for SB 1132, as well as setting up constituent meetings with local lawmakers.
