SUPPORT: SB 467 Ban Fracking and Other Destructive Oil Extraction Methods and to Require Distance Between Oil Extraction and Homes and Schools

This California bill would stop new and renewed permits for, and ban after January 2022, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and other oil extraction methods that pose risks to the environment and public health. Also, the bill will be amended to require distance between current oil drilling and homes, schools, and other facilities. Oil extraction overwhelmingly occurs near where people of color and low income people live, causing significant negative health impacts. February 2021
