This week the Republican-controlled North Carolina Senate VOTED TO LEAGALIZE FRACKING FOR NATURAL GAS in the state, following the lead of the Republican House, which approved the measure last week.
Senate Bill 820 now goes to Gov. Beverly Perdue (D), who has been inundated with calls, emails and letters asking for her veto. She has 10 days from the bill's passage to make a decision.
A spokesperson for Perdue told the News & Observer of Raleigh that her office has received 7,641 emails and 2,824 phone calls since the issue began getting attention, and that they are "overwhelmingly opposed to fracking with very few supportive comments."
Perdue also heard from Calvin Tillman, the former mayor of Dish, Texas, a town at the center of that state's fracking industry. Now an advocate for communities affected by fracking, Tillman visited Raleigh earlier this month to talk to state lawmakers about the serious environmental health problems the rural community north of Fort Worth has experienced.
In a letter sent to Perdue this week, Tillman -- a conservative independent -- detailed concerns about the legal questions around property rights raised by the North Carolina bill. Here is the text of his letter; to view the original signed version click here.

Ewe! Fracking. Another bizarre way to rape mama.

Even people who are not from NC need to call or write to the gov. If NC does it the oil companies will feel empowered to do this in more and more places.

Tracey, thank you for taking up the fight on this.

Expect rough roads, heavy truck traffic, poisoned water and occassional earthquakes.

Well, Susan, apparently you and I don't know the proper use of the word r.a.p.e. :) read previous post comments, but yes YOU are right, it is a rape on Mother Nature if ever there was one!
Lori, you are so right, if it comes to NC it won't be long before it's in every state. People ned to wake up!!!!!
