Tell California Officials: No Drilling Where We're Living!

Right now, more than 2 Million Californians are living and breathing the toxic health impacts of oil and gas drilling sites in their neighborhoods. An end to chronic asthma and cancer in our neighborhoods is in sight. Just last month, Governor Gavin Newsom issued a draft regulation to stop new drilling within 3,200 feet of homes, hospitals, schools, and other sensitive receptors. 

Now, a 60 day comment period allows the public to raise our voices to:

1) SUPPORT the 3,200-foot setback for new wells

2) DEMAND that the setback rule applies to existing wells, not just new wells

3) URGE the Governor's administration and CalGEM to take emergency action to ban all new permits within the setback until the final rule is in effect.
