Community Bill of Rights

We support placing a referendum on the spring ballot that says, "Shall the people's right to local self-government be asserted by Johnson County to ban corporate fracking as a violation of their rights to health, safety and a clean environment?"

Why is this important?

Fracking can not be done without destruction of the environment. We live in an active fault zone and class 2 water injection wells are known to cause earthquakes. No amount of money can fix the destruction wrought by the New Madrid Fault fracturing.
