Darren Soto Working With Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Fracking Ban
U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, brought out the “Ban Fracking Act” last week. The bill “would institute an immediate federal ban on all new federal permits for fracking-related infrastructure and a ban on fracking within 2,500 feet of homes and schools by 2021” before, in 2025, banning fracking. Soto is the only cosponsor of the bill in the House.
