MARYLAND LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS’ EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR KARLA RAETTIG:
STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR HOGAN’S SUPPORT OF THE FRACKING BAN
Annapolis, MD- Today, the Maryland League of Conservation Voters commends the Governor’s recent stance on supporting a full ban of the practice of hydraulic fracturing in Maryland. He joins the bi-partisan effort of a ban after the Maryland House of Delegates passed the legislation with overwhelming support.
We also want to recognize the tireless efforts of our legislators in the Maryland General Assembly, Chairman Kumar Barve, Delegate Shane Robinson, Delegate David Fraser-Hidalgo, Senator Bobby Zirkin and Chairwoman Joan Carter-Conway for their support of this bill. This action would not have happened without the dedication and work of thousands of advocates from more than 140 organizations across the State.
We look forward to working with the Governor and General Assembly to protect Maryland from this dangerous practice for the good of all Marylanders and the planet.
