Clean water advocates plan to stage large visuals throughout Tallahassee in coordination with the Governor’s inauguration events on Monday and Tuesday next week. The action will call attention to the promise Governor-Elect Ron DeSantis made on the campaign trail to push for a statewide fracking ban beginning on “Day One” of his Administration.
In July last year, DeSantis voiced support for banning fracking statewide when a clean water activist approached him about it at a campaign event in Tampa. DeSantis continued to voice support for a statewide fracking ban as part of his plan to clean up Florida’s waters throughout the rest of the campaign. Advocates hope DeSantis will hold true to his promise to advocate for a ban in the state legislature.
