Dear Residents and Activist,
Please call or email Governor Lujan Grisham and Legislators
Demand the Governor put the Fracking Moratorium Bill (SB 104) on the call for this session so it can be heard in committee.
New Mexico's short 30-day legislative session has begun. We all need to work together to support frontline and Indigenous communities affected by fracking, as well as supporting the youth's call from immediate action on the climate crisis. It is important to send these letters and make the calls to show the governor and legislators public support for a moratorium on fracking in New Mexico. We will continue a campaign throughout the year until a moratorium is passed.
Please call Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, (505) 476-2200 or email the Governor today! State that you support the fracking bill SB 104.
Ask the Governor to Declare a Climate Emergency
Ask her to add the Fracking Legislation (SB 104) to the Governor's Call.
Let her know why this legislation is important to you.
Remind her of the benefits of this bill
Bring this recent event to the attention of our lawmakers. The January 21th explosion of a "produced water" line - just 100 feet from a family residence in Carlsbad - illuminates the serious gaps in a broken regulatory system that are putting the health and safety of all New Mexicans at risk. The disposal of so-called "produced water"- in reality, the fracking industry's toxic waste - is creating a public health emergency of unprecedented scope across America. In 2018, more than 42 billion gallons of produced water were created in NM's Permian Basin alone. Please take the time to read this letter, follow the links, and send it on to our elected officials. We can be silent no longer.
Read SB 104 for yourself. SB 104 is sponsored by Senator Antoinette Sedillo Lopez (D-Dist. 16) and Senator Patricia Roybal Caballero (D-Dist. 13). We need this bill to address health studies, health protections and safety Issues from fracking in New Mexico.
