Keep secret chemicals out of California's water!
Oil and gas companies are drilling in California using the controversial technology known as "fracking," with hardly any oversight. This leaves your groundwater at risk of contamination. We need your voice today to change that!
Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) has filed a common-sense bill (AB 591) that would ensure that California's citizens have access to information about fracking in our communities. AB 591 would require oil and gas companies to disclose - for the first time - when and where they are fracking, what chemicals they are using and how much scarce water their operations consume. All of this information would be published on a public web site, creating one of the toughest fracking disclosure requirements in the nation.
This bill needs your help to become law. Your state legislators and Governor Brown need to hear that you want them to support AB 591!

I urge you to support AB 591 because Californians have the right to know what chemicals companies are using when they frack for oil and gas in California.
California has the opportunity to avoid the problems that fracking has caused in other states by ensuring that we know where and how these processes are being used. Tracking where fracking is occurring and disclosing the chemicals being used on a state-run public web site is an important first step.
As a California resident and supporter of the EWG Action Fund, I have a right to this information. That's why I support AB 591 and expect California's leaders to do the same.
