VICTORY: No Fracking in the Delaware River Valley
Delaware Governor Jack Markell was the deciding vote on the Delaware River Basin Commission on proposed weak fracking regulations that would have threatened the drinking water of more than 15 million people. Unsure how the governor would vote on this terrible proposal, progressive Delaware state legislator John Kowalko started a MoveOn Petition urging the governor to vote no. After more than 1,000 signatures and a wave of media coverage, Gov. Markell announced he would oppose the weak regulations, protecting the region’s drinking water.
