  •  Not the bill it was thanks to Pavley (5+ / 0-)

    who rather quickly after it passed the Senate, made it much weaker by taking out any reference to a moratorium while these studies she is requesting in the bill are being done.

    It also leaves the trade secret protections in and, appears now to exclude "steam flooding, water flooding, or cyclic steaming" under the definition of well-stimulation.  

    Are there any other "last minute" things Speaker Perez is going to gut before he thinks his friends in oil and gas likes it enough? Trust level is very low on this legislative leadership.

    I agree strongly we need a moratorium and we should fight for it starting . . . now, for all the reasons you state and more.

      I agree with your comment.  If you could help circulate this petition, it would be great.  The environmental NGOs even the ones that oppose the bill are of no help in this.  They want access to Pavley and to be able to say they were part of a solution.  But this is no solution and only makes it more difficult to get a ban next year.
