Action Alert from Florida Conservation Voters

Florida’s conservation community and citizens alike have worked for years to pass a true fracking ban at the state level. 
 
But this year marks the first time we’ve had bipartisan support for this legislation in both the House of Representatives and Senate.
 
Your House and Senate members need to hear from conservation voters like you about the importance of cosponsoring this good fracking ban legislation.
 
Dozens of high-powered oil and gas industry lobbyists are already actively pressuring your legislators to allow more fracking in Florida. In fact, right now they are running a statewide robo-call campaign to undermine our efforts.
 
Don’t let Exxon Mobil have the last word when it comes to protecting our water.
 
Take 2 minutes right now to call your state Senator and Representative and ask them to cosponsor the good, bipartisan fracking bans that have been introduced.
 
To make it easy for you, we’ve set up a hotline that will automatically transfer you to your state legislators. When you dial the numbers below, you will hear the following message:
 
"Thanks for calling your [Senator or Representative]. In a moment you'll be prompted to enter your zip code, then connected to their office."
 
To contact your State Representative, please call: 844-899-9394
 
“As a constituent, I’m calling to urge the Representative to cosponsor the fracking ban, HB 451. I’m deeply concerned about the dangers fracking poses to our environment and economy. Tourism is one of our largest industries and in order to keep Florida a major tourist destination, we must protect our environment by banning fracking. Again, I urge you to cosponsor HB 451, the fracking ban. Thank you.”
 
To contact your State Senator, please call: 844-899-8866
 
“As a constituent, I’m calling to urge the Senator to cosponsor the fracking ban SB 442. I’m deeply concerned about the dangers fracking poses to our environment and economy. Tourism is one of our largest industries and in order to keep Florida a major tourist destination, we must protect our environment by banning fracking. Again, I urge you to cosponsor SB 442, the fracking ban. Thank you.”
 
If you complete your calls using a cell phone, you will receive a follow-up text asking if you would like to receive further action alerts by text. If you would like to, please respond with “FCV” (instead of simply entering “YES” as the text instructions say).
 
Contacting your elected officials is one of the best things you can do to protect Florida’s waters and keep fracking out of our state. Remember to be polite to the person who answers the phone and make sure you let them know that you are a constituent who votes.
 
Your voice will make a difference. Thank you.
