MD General Assembly passes fracking ban backed by Governor

On Monday, the 27th of March, the MD General Assembly gave final approval to legislation permanently banning gas fracking in MD. The bill now moves to the governor's desk for signature. Given that it was support from Gov Hogan (under intense public pressure) that got the bill moving in the Senate, the governor is expected to sign the bill into law. This will make MD the 3rd state to ban fracking, in direct defiance of Trump's pro fossil fuel agenda.

A great deal of interference against the Trump regime is possible in exactly this way. State bans on fracking. State and local denials of permits for pipelines. The overturning in Nebraska of fast-tracked eminent domain for the Keystone XL, which puts the project in doubt no matter what Trump says or does. Defending our sanctuary cities like both DC and Baltimore, fighting for every inch of ground with not a step back!
