Stop MRCOG OIL & GAS Ordinance Guidance & InFRACKstructure

Stop Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG) Oil & Gas Ordinance Guidance & InFRACKstructure

It is time for adaptation and transitional policy making. MRCOG has written an industry driven oil and gas ordinance that lacks public transparency.


We are in a Climate Crisis! NO Business As Usual! We support a Moratorium on Hydraulic Fracturing

Endorse the letter to MRCOG:

  1. To stop unsustainable development of roads Needs a new Environmental Impacts Study because multidirectional fracking industry was not being a concern in 2001-2001Nor was Climate Change considered with the science now available.
  2. To support NO New Fracking Permits by endorsing SB 459
  3. To Stop the Passage of an Industry Driven Oil and Gas Ordinance.
  4. Violates the State Water Plan and sets up Produced Water Use Socializing costs as Public funds for private industry through the Water Trust Board and Mortgage Finance Authority  
  5. To Pass a Moratorium on fracking for 5 years so the necessary studies can be done to adapt and transition away from fossil fuel emissions and other impacts.

  • Stonewalling public interests,
  • Violating due process of stakeholders impacted by the planning of the ordinance guidance.
  • Rolling over communities for unsustainable development
  • Building a by-pass to haul contaminated waste that will not stop health impacts
  • Impacting the health and safety without considering the numerous peer- reviewed studies
