Stop taking money from the oil industry and prioritize public health over industry profits!
In the last 10 years, the oil industry has spent over $266 Million influencing California legislators and policy. This spending has allowed them to prevent the passing of meaningful legislation and/or block policies that would limit their ability to drill and pollute.
After the state of California performed independent studies such as the California Council on Science and Technology Report (CCST), which made strong recommendations to protect public health from the toxicity of oil operations, our legislators instead protected the oil industry and left the public vulnerable to toxic exposure.
We need champions looking out for our communities, not for the profits of the oil industry. Until the flow of money into our democracy and the control of lobbyists stops or is seriously curtailed, nothing is going to change.
Governor Brown and California’s elected officials: stop taking money from the oil industry and prioritize public health and well being over oil industry profits.
