Their board of county supervisors voted unanimously to not only prohibit fracking but also gas and oil development.
And there are other counties that are following with their own bans.
Butte, Mendocino, Monterey, Santa Barbara, San Benito and Orange counties are among those considering their own fracking and oil bans. Beverly Hills recently became the state’s first city to ban fracking a month ago. Los Angeles working on its own ban after passing a moratorium in February.This is how it is done when your duly elected representatives refuse to represent the people. I love this quote:
“This is very similar to the effort to ban plastic bags city by city, county by county, because it was felt that in Sacramento no progress can be made,” Haifley told the Santa Cruz Sentinel. “This is taking matters into your own hands.”
