City Council members Tuesday called on city staff to investigate whether natural gas and oil drilling methods, such as fracking, helped trigger Monday’s magnitude-4.4 earthquake.
The Los Angeles City Council moved Friday to make L.A. the biggest city in the nation to approve a moratorium on a controversial oil and gas drilling practice.
Protesters Monday rallied at Cal State Long Beach to call for Gov. Jerry Brown to outlaw well-stimulation treatment for oil and gas production, or “fracking.”
The oil production technique known as fracking is more widespread and frequently used in the offshore platforms and man-made islands near some of California’s most populous and famous coastal communities than state officials believed.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Friday that will establish California’s first rules detailing how oil drillers use a technique known as fracking.
The measure includes a requirement that drillers disclose the chemicals they use in the process of hydraulic fracturing.
Two Los Angeles City Council members introduced a motion Wednesday calling for a moratorium on a controversial natural gas extraction process.
Environmental activists were set to descend on the offices of a San Fernando Valley lawmaker Monday to demand she support a legislative ban on a controversial drilling process.
Members of the Los Angeles City Council are expected to consider a resolution calling for tougher regulations on local fracking activities when the Council returns from recess next week.
