PRESS STATEMENT: Florida Conservation Voters Applauds Senator Dana Young for Promise to Sponsor Fracking Ban Legislation

published on: January 24, 2017

Florida Conservation Voters applauds Senator Dana Young for sponsoring SB 442, a true fracking ban, during the 2017 Florida Legislative Session. Senator Young’s previous support for fracking legislation was the single biggest issue of her race for Senate District 18.

“Florida Conservation Voters applauds Senator Dana Young for her commitment to sponsor a true statewide fracking ban,” said Aliki Moncrief, Executive Director, Florida Conservation Voters. “Our quality of life and economy depend on a healthy environment – especially in the Tampa Bay area. I’m glad that Senator Young recognizes that there is no place for fracking anywhere in Florida – our drinking water and Florida’s remarkable rivers, springs, and natural areas are too precious to risk.”
