Only days left to fight fracking and protect our drinking water

If we want to protect New York's drinking water from risky natural gas drilling, we need to act now.

On Monday, the New York State Assembly will hold its final meeting of the year -- their last chance to pass a moratorium on "fracking," a drilling method that threatens our water supply and our environment.

After grassroots pressure from tens of thousands of concerned New Yorkers, the State Senate approved the moratorium this summer. But unless the Assembly passes the same bill before the end of the year, the ban won't become law, and risky new drilling in New York could begin.

I just signed the petition sponsored by the Working Families Party and MoveOn.org telling the New York Assembly to protect our water. Will you join me? Just go to:

Thanks for your time.
