Stand up for Fayette County’s frack waste ban!
This Friday, June 10th at 10am, the Fayette County Commission's historic ban on oil and gas waste disposal is being challenged by EQT Corporation. EQT is seeking a permanent injunction against the ordinance to make these kind of county-wide bans unenforceable. We will be doing our best to make sure our ordinance stands, to set a precedent in Fayette County that will uphold other county's rights to enact similar ordinances. But we need your help!

Right to Discriminate
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) – HB 4012 – has made its way through committee and is likely to appear on the House agenda for its first reading this week. This bill, which is similar to the one passed in Indiana, would allow individuals to not abide by local or state policies, laws, or actions that they claim violate their religious beliefs. Opponents of the bill, thus, fear the bill legalizing discrimination, especially against the LGBTQ community.
