Will LA ban fracking this week?
...They just might.
Yesterday 280 concerned Los Angelinos packed a public hearing room to watch the Planning and Land Use Committee of the Los Angeles City Council vote to place a moratorium on fracking in Los Angeles. The vote in this committee was seen as the largest hurdle standing in the way of the full LA City Council approving this moratorium.
The LA City Council is expected to vote on the moratorium this Friday. This sets the stage for Los Angeles to become the first major city in California to prohibit fracking!
