Elected Officials Against Fracking
We, the undersigned elected officials from across the United States, are concerned about the devastating impacts of fracking and fracking infrastructure on our communities, public health, and the global climate. We urge the President and Members of Congress to take the following actions:
--Stop new permits for fracking on federal lands, as well as federal permits for fracking or fracking infrastructure to extract, refine, transport, or burn natural gas or oil.
--End federal subsidies for the fracking industry and other fossil fuel companies.
--Revoke permits for current oil & gas wells within 2,500 ft of homes, schools, or other inhabited structures.
--Work with Indigenous Peoples, workers, unions, and frontline community organizations to immediately invest in a just transition and comprehensive economic plan for communities and workers impacted by the fracking industry.
--Ban the practice of fracking nationwide, effective no later than 2025.
