FDP Responds to Senate Republicans' Committee Vote on Faux Fracking Ban

Posted

Today, Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Kevin Donohoe released the following statement on the Senate Agriculture Committee's vote to approve a faux fracking ban:

"Today, Senate Republicans on the Agriculture Committee gave a wet, dirty kiss to the fossil fuel industry. This legislation will do nothing to protect our children from the dangerous, even deadly, threat that fracking poses to their health. Republican senators should be ashamed for betraying Florida's proud, bipartisan tradition of protecting our environment. Democrats will continue to fight this sham bill and do everything possible to protect our children's right to clean water in this state."
