(SACRAMENTO) – Assemblymember Mark Stone (D-Monterey Bay) has announced legislation to keep communities' water supply safe by ensuring that wastewater used in oil and gas drilling is disposed of properly. AB 669 would provide appropriate governmental oversight and monitoring of wastewater produced during fracking and other oil and gas drilling operations.
"Fracking potentially exposes Californians' water supply to toxic chemicals. Currently, there's little governmental oversight to ensure that our groundwater supply doesn't get contaminated by the large volume of toxic wastewater fracking produces," said Stone. "My bill would address this shortcoming in the law and would help protect the public's health."
February 12, 2013 (SACRAMENTO) – Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez has appointed Assemblymember Mark Stone (D-Monterey Bay) to serve as the Chair of the newly convened Assembly Select Committee on Coastal Protection.
