What's really happening with fracking in California

Don't buy into the hype do your own research on this issue before you decide what is right. Please read the entire article and let me know your thoughts.

REVIEW & OUTLOOK: Fracturing in California
Democrats revolt against a ban on oil and gas 'fracking.'
Few issues divide Democrats more than energy policy, as we've learned as unions and environmentalists fight over the Keystone XL pipeline. More evidence now comes from California, where greens have lost an attempt to ban oil and gas hydraulic fracturing.

Urgent Action Alert! Send a letter to CPUC Regarding Basic Telephone Service.

Your help is needed on this very important issue. 

The CPUC will vote on a change to the definition to Basic Telephone Services introduced as legislation by Gwen Moore in the 1990’s. Commission President Mike Peevey wants to include wireless services as a part of the Basic Services definition . Basic Services include Lifeline Services which reduces the cost of telephone services for under served and low income communities.
Technology has improved over the years since this legislation was introduced, it only makes sense that this change be made.

No on SB 568

This Bill is not good for Black and Latino owned small restaurants. The increase in cost will cause job lost and maybe even closure. Contact your Assembly Member and ask for a no vote on SB 568. 

CARB hearing Thursday 5/24/12

It has been said in regards to major policy decisions that“you are either at the table or on the menu”.

I am putting together a group of Black Leaders to attend the CARB hearing listed below in order to have our voices heard on a very important matter. CARB is hosting a panel to help them determine how the funds they receive from Cap & Trade are going to be invested.
Let’s be clear, these funds are going to be paid by utility companies, oil companies and major manufacturing companies. This means that these funds are actually coming from you and me because these companies will pass these costs down to the consumer.
