House Bill 2154 would significantly change the environmental requirements for conventional oil and gas drilling operators, putting clean air and pure water in jeopardy.
It would reenact the Oil and Gas Act of 1984 for conventional oil and gas drilling operators, turning back the clock on standards by 34 years, rejecting modern technology.
It promotes the use of drilling fluids and wastewater without any supporting scientific evidence deeming it safe for the public, potentially leaving your family at risk. This broadly threatens surface water in rural areas, where many of the highest quality streams and headwaters are located.
This bill opens the door to more drilling operations across Pennsylvania, which further endangers our air and water.
This bill eliminates protections for public resources, such as parks, forests and wildlife preserves.
It will weaken public health regulations in favor of profits for polluters.
Your continued action is needed now. Please contact your state senators and urge them to vote NO on rolling back Pennsylvania’s environmental protection!
