  • Fracking Poll: Strong Majority of Marylanders Want the General Assembly to Put a Long-Term Hold on Risky Drilling | Chesapeake Climate Action Network
    Republican voters polled 56 percent support a long term moratorium or ban alongside nearly three quarters of Democrats Marylanders want the General Assembly not Governor Hogan to make the call In fact more Marylanders want the General Assembly to ban fracking outright 25 than want legislators to leave the decision up to Governor Larry Hogan 20 This poll confirms that Marylanders are looking to the General Assembly for leadership said Shilpa Joshi Maryland campaign coordinator at the Chesapeake Climate Action Network By passing a moratorium on fracking in 2015 state legislators will be ensuring the health and safety of all Marylanders and responding to the will of voters The Protect Our Health and Communities Act HB 449 SB 409 introduced in early February by Senator Karen Montgomery Delegate David Fraser Hidalgo and 51 legislative co sponsors will be heard Tuesday afternoon in the Senate Education Health and Environmental Affairs Committee The bill would place an eight year hold on the issuance of drilling permits in Maryland Scientists and health professionals have said that a long term moratorium is required to fully understand the nature and severity of the long term cumulative health risks of drilling and fracking Dozens of peer reviewed scientific studies indicate inherent risks to public health and the environment from fracking wherever it occurs said Ann Bristow PhD a Garrett County resident who was a commissioner on the state s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission and is a cofounder of Concerned Health Professionals of Maryland The Maryland public is rightly worried about these risks It s time for the General Assembly to follow the lead of New York and take action to protect our communities from potentially irreversible harm Ahead of tomorrow s committee hearing legislators advocates business owners health professionals and scores of concerned state residents will
