Natural Gas & Oil Infrastructure Hearing - Join us!

Let’s pack the room and urge the Energy Committee to rule favorably on:

  • Three important bills to prevent new fracked gas infrastructure.

These bills will provide firm legal and regulatory footing for our fight to stop any polluting, climate-changing pipelines.

The Consumer Cost Protection bill that shifts the cost of leaking gas from our bills to the utilities.  We need this bill to make sure utilities find and fix the biggest leaks quickly.

See below for more info on the bills.

TESTIFY!

Bring your story about why these bills are important to you in our fight against climate change and for environmental justice. If you would like to testify or help in any way, please contact Susan: lees.susan7@gmail.com.
