Hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, is the use of sand, water, and chemicals, injected at incredibly high pressures, to blast open rock deep beneath the surface of the earth to release trapped oil and gas.

Unfortunately, Rep. Ray Rodrigues (R-Ft. Myers) has introduced two bills this session that would make it easier for this controversial oil and gas extraction process to take place in Florida.

While there are no planned fracking projects in Florida as of yet, the two bills below will cut off the public’s right to know the details of the chemical mix that is pumped into the ground during the fracking process.

Join thousands of others in opposition to fracking in Florida. Click here to add your name to this petition right now so we can show the oil and gas industry that Floridians stand united to protect Florida’s incredible water resources.
