The New York State Assembly is scheduled to come back Monday, May 29 and if they don't pass this companion bill, all of our hard work will be undone! Since this is the final time the Assembly will meet this year, it's going to be our last chance to pass the moratorium bill in the Assembly to stop fracking in New York State this year.
If the Sweeney Bill (A11443B) fails to be brought up for a vote, the Department of Environmental Conservation could begin issuing fracking permits at any moment and all will be lost! We cannot let that happen! It is critical that the Assembly and the Governor hear from you as a member of our powerful movement!
