Florida Conservation Voters Applauds Senator Dana Young for Promise to Sponsor Fracking Ban Legislation

Tallahassee, FL (November 17, 2016) – Florida Conservation Voters applauds Senator Dana Young for her promise to sponsor a true fracking ban bill during the 2017 Florida Legislative Session. Senator Young’s previous support for fracking legislation was the single biggest issue of her race for Senate District 18. Young made the statement earlier today at the Sayfie Review Florida Leaders Summit in Orlando.

“Florida Conservation Voters applauds Senator Dana Young for her commitment to sponsor a true statewide fracking ban,” said Aliki Moncrief, Executive Director, Florida Conservation Voters. “Our quality of life and economy depend on a healthy environment – especially in the Tampa Bay area. I’m glad that Senator Young recognizes that there is no place for fracking anywhere in Florida – our drinking water and Florida’s remarkable rivers, springs, and natural areas are too precious to risk.”
