Governor Hogan: Follow New York's Lead and Ban Fracking in Maryland!

New York just made a monumental decision to ban fracking! After activists demanded that the health effects of fracking be studied, a two year investigation by the state's own commission confirmed what the movement has been saying all along, that fracking cannot be done safely. Now, I urge you to do the same.

Hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas is a dangerous process that threatens our health and environment. I urge you to follow New York's lead and ban fracking in Maryland to protect all families from this dangerous process.

Why is this important?

It's official: the state of New York banned fracking! Maryland could make a decision on fracking soon, so we're calling on Governor Hogan to follow New York's lead.

This victory is because of the years of education, mobilization and advocacy work to build the political power for holding Governor Cuomo accountable to the people, not the Oil and Gas industry. New Yorkers Against Fracking, a coalition founded by Food & Water Watch, and the strong network of allies and grassroots activists are directly responsible for this victory.

After activists demanded that the health effects of fracking be studied, a two year investigation by the state's own commission confirmed what the movement has been saying all along, that fracking cannot be done safely. New York has set an example that the rest of the country should follow to make sure that families in every state are protected from fracking.
