SEPT 28: Denver No Frack Rally & EPA Public Hearing

State-wide NO FRACK Rally 
& Public Hearing 
on the EPA Proposed Air Pollution Rules
NEXT WEDNESDAY, Sept 28th, the EPA is holding a hearing on fracking (oil and gas extraction) and air quality.
The Oil and Gas industry has been exempt from EPA regulations that normally protect our air and water as well as our health, such as the Clean Air Act and the Safe Water Drinking Act, since 2005. This exemption, called the "Halliburton Loophole," is allowing highly toxic chemicals into our air, water and land and causing serious health impacts all over Colorado.  The Halliburton Loophole urgently needs to be closed! 
Colorado Convention Center
700 14th Street
