Fracking Ban Needs Legal Analysis
updated: May 22, 2014, 11:10 AM

County Supervisors voted for legal analysis of the proposed fracking ban on Tuesday afternoon, reports KEYT.

Those who oppose and support the ban attended the County Supervisor meeting, sharing their passionate opinions. Several reports state that the meeting was mostly filled with oil industry representatives and supporters with a noticeable lack of environmentalists.

The Santa Barbara County Water Guardians group collected more than 19,000 valid signatures to qualify a proposed ban on fracking for a public vote. County Supervisors voted 5-0 on to send the proposal to attorneys for a legal analysis. They can then vote to adopt the ban or add it to the ballot in November.

The board has scheduled a final public hearing on the measure on Friday the 13th to hear the results of that analysis and to give the public another chance to comment. The hearing is scheduled at 9:00 a.m. in the County Supervisors Hearing Room at the Betteravia Government Center in Santa Maria.
