**** UPDATE: Statehouse Action Added!****

Statehouse Action - Meet 2:30pm, Capital Building front entrance
IDNR Rally - Meet 4:00pm, IDNR Building front entrance

Thanks to the extended special session -- keeping the capitol building open and our elected leaders in their offices -- we will have an extra statehouse action earlier in the day!

We are delivering over 9,000 petition signatures to Governor Rauner demanding he BAN FRACKING NOW. He has the power to direct the IDNR to stop the first fracking permit from being approved.

To be part of the statehouse action, join us outside the front entrance to the capitol building at Capitol and 2nd (the Lincoln statue entrance) by 2:30pm. We will enter as a group, and send representatives into Governor Rauner's office to deliver the petition.

Everyone from the statehouse action will then caravan over to the IDNR building (One Natural Resources Way, Springfield, IL) to rally and deliver our public comments at 4pm. Special thanks to Gov. Rauner for calling an emergency summer session! ;)

********************

For the past several months, the Illinois Green Party and multiple environmental organizations have been gathering petitions and public comments opposing the issuance of Illinois' first high-volume fracking permit.

If issued, the permit would open the door for more companies to come into our state and use hazardous, unsustainable extraction methods. Thousands of Illinois residents have written letters or signed petitions saying "NO" to fracking permits -- and next Friday, concerned citizens from around the state will descend on the Department of Natural Resources to submit those papers at the close of the public comment period.

Help build our show of strength by turning out! We will be meeting at 4:00pm on Friday, July 28th, in front of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources building (north side entrance, off Natural Resources Way). After a brief demonstration, petitions will be submitted prior to the close of the public comment period at 5:00pm.

If you would like to join us but need transportation, please contact volunteer@ilgp.org.

Also, if you haven't already, you can sign the petition at ilgp.org/no_to_fracking_petition.

We'll see you in Springfield!
