Ride the Bus for an Override
Next month, join local community activists as they rally throughout the state in support of a bill that would ban fracking waste.
Last month, Governor Christie vetoed A575 which would keep hazardous fracking waste from being processed (many times inefficiently) in New Jersey facilities.
Environmental groups from across the state are asking you to RIDE the BUS to the offices of legislators throughout the region and show your support for an override of the Governor's veto.
