This will ask for 5-6 minutes at the mike to give an update on the Committee to Ban Fracking in Michigan. We submitted 271,000 voter signatures to the Secretary of State for a 2020 ballot initiative a year ago, and she returned them without canvassing or counting. Our initiative language would require state oil-gas regulators to protect climate, a task they do not even claim do under the current law, enacted in 1939. Also the initiative would ban horizontal fracking and its waste in the state. No other state statute or pending bill requires regulators to protect climate. We filed our brief in the Michigan Court of Appeals last month. Download it at http://letsbanfracking.lorg/lawsuit . I gave a similar talk at the Traverse City climate rally in September. Thank you.
