Women's March Florida Daily Action 2/20/17
Call House Speaker Richard Corcoran at 888-925-7006 and urge him to support House Bill 451 to ban fracking statewide!
Here's a sample message you can use when you call:
"Hi, my name is ______ and I'm a Floridian concerned about the dangers fracking poses to our environment and economy. Tourism is one of our largest industries and in order to keep Florida as a major tourist destination, we must protect our environment by banning fracking. I urge Speaker Corcoran to support House Bill 451 to ban fracking statewide. Thank you." (More sample messages below if you'd like to personalize your call)
Senator Dana Young (R-Tampa) and Representative Mike Miller (R-Orlando) have introduced bipartisan-backed legislation to ban fracking in Florida. But in order to be able to pass the bill, we need the support of House and Senate leadership. We have support for a statewide fracking ban from Senate President Pro Tempore Anitere Flores (R-Miami) so we need to ensure we also have support from leadership in the House.
Please call Speaker Corcoran at 888-925-7006 which will link you to his office in Tallahassee. When you call, let the office know you want Speaker Corcoran to protect Florida's environment and economy by supporting legislation to ban fracking, House Bill 451.
You can also personalize your call by using these messages:
• Economy: Our tourism-based economy is placed at risk with the potential for fracking in the state. One incident could have a huge economic effect on the economy and jobs.
• Water: Fracking threatens the health of our drinking water through contamination. The Floridan Aquifer, the sole source of drinking water for millions of Floridians, is at risk.
• Communities: Low-income and communities of color are disproportionately affected by fracking and the rapid expansion of fracking infrastructure around the country which has led to a long list of serious health problems in these and other communities.
