Over 570 Groups Endorse Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez Fracking Ban Bills | Food & Water Watch

Over 570 national, regional, and local grassroots groups from across the country have signed a letter supporting the Fracking Ban Act, the first-ever federal legislation that would ban fracking and all related infrastructure projects.

The legislation was introduced this year by Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR), and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Darren Soto (D-FL).

The letter, which urges members Congress to co-sponsor the legislation, was organized by the advocacy group Food & Water Action, which in 2011 was the first national organization to call for a ban on fracking.
