Ebony Magazine: What You Need to Know About Fracking

September 18, 2013

Last year, Assemblywoman Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles) introduced Bill 1323, which called for a moratorium on fracking statewide, mandating that California's Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Agencies complete a study of its safety by January 2016.  The bill would have allowed fracking to resume if its safety could be demonstrated and regulations were put in place to keep it safe and ensure monitoring.  Mitchell says that the issue was brought literally to her doorstep by a group of concerned residents that lived in proximity to the Inglewood Oil Field.
