Vote For GA resolution Repeal "Restrictions on Hydraulic Fracturing"

General Assembly Vote Recommendation

Part of the Information for WA Voters program

Resolution at Vote: Repeal "Restrictions on Hydraulic Fracturing"
Vote Recommendation: For

Resolution Analysis
The proposal seeks to repeal "Restrictions On Hydraulic Fracturing" (GAR#417), citing a number of loopholes that render the targeted resolution largely irrelevant. For instance, advances in fracturing mean that non-hydraulic fracturing has become more common, making the resolution's definition of "pressurized liquids" easy to get around by using natural gas, nitrogen, propane stimulation and pneumatic fracturing. There are also wide exemptions for hydraulic fracturing itself and for fracking activities near member states' borders.

We believe the arguments made in the repeal are reasonable, given the loopholes in the existing resolution, some of which would have been less apparent to the authors and voters back in 2017 when this resolution was passed, due to rapid advances in fracking technologies.

For the above reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote For the General Assembly Resolution at vote, "Repeal "Restrictions On Hydraulic Fracturing"".
