Protect Idaho's Water and Communities
Stand up for safe drinking water and community health! Join ICL in asking Gov. Butch Otter to veto HB 464, a bill proposed by the oil and gas industry.
After you provide your ZIP code below, you'll be directed to a page with space to write a letter about your concerns with HB 464.
To help, here are some of our talking points on this issue. Feel free to use any of these talking points in your letter:
- This bill was introduced by the Idaho Petroleum Council, the lobbying group formed to represent the oil and gas industry in Idaho. It limits the ability of local governments and the public to make decisions to protect their communities from this industry.
- This bill would also allow the industry to use injection wells for oil and gas production. Since this method is now prohibited, the bill clears the way for more hazardous chemicals to make their way into the ground, where they could endanger your drinking water.
- Natural gas can be produced in a way that protects Idaho's water and our communities' health. But the path that the industry proposes puts Idahoans at risk.
- Because of these dangers, we oppose this natural gas bill (HB 464).
