To: Johnson County Board, Illinois, Johnson County Commissioners

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.

Reasons for signing

  • Citizens' rights or Corporate rights?
  • Please curtail any fracking in Central Illinois.
  • Several studies have found connections between earthquakes and fracking--Johnson County is on top of the New Madrid Fault line...is anybody seriously considering the consequences of their decisions?! Yes the Johnson County community is, enforce their right to protect their community!
