Fracking Town Hall Meeting In Laredo, TX

The Safe Fracking Coalition is ten days away from hosting a town hall meeting at the UT Health Science Center - Extension Campus located at 1937 Bustamante St.  The event will take place June 10, at 6 p.m., in the 2nd floor auditorium. 

The meeting will focus on the potential environmental and public health impact of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.  The S.F.C. is working in conjunction with Rep. Richard Raymond, The Rio Grande International Study Center and Dr. Gladys Keene. 

Special guests include:  members of the Texas Railroad Commission; Texas Water Development Board staff; residents of the Barnett Shale near Fort Worth; and Dish Mayor Calvin Tillman. 

The event is free and refreshments will be served.

Contact Tricia Cortez for more information at (956)721-5392. 

LaSanbe is planning to live-blog the event. 

Join me tomorrow night (Wednesday), on this site, around 8 p.m. for a livecast to talk about fracking or any other topic that's out there. 

Lastly, the public library on Calton and McPherson will have two viewings of the documentary "Gasland."  It is free to the public.  Show times are:  Sunday June 5 at 1 p.m., and Wednesday June 8 at 5 p.m.
