Citing Public Health Concerns, Local Officials Urge Brown To Halt Fracking, Protect Water Supply Amid Drought
A coalition of more than 100 local officials, including mayors and city council members, have sent a letter to Gov. Jerry Brown (D) urging him to stop fracking to protect the water supply during the current drought. The letter warns that fracking can "exacerbate many of our environmental threats, particularly local air and water pollution and climate disruption."
