Governor Larry Hogan just gave formal approval to the Potomac Pipeline for fracked-gas. This dangerous pipeline would cross under the Potomac River and treasured C&O Canal, threatening the drinking water of millions of residents and accelerating climate change. After Marylanders took a historic step to ban fracking in their state, we should be moving forwards, not backwards, and fighting for a clean energy future.

Please phone Governor Hogan right now.

Follow these steps to call Governor Hogan now:

1. Dial this number: 800-811-8336.

2. Use this script— or paraphrase in your own words when Hogan’s staffer answers:

“Hi, my name is ________ and I am a resident of (name of town/city,Maryland). I am calling to say that I am very disappointed in Governor Hogan’s decision to permit the Potomac Pipeline and his plans to expand natural gas infrastructure throughout Maryland. Thousands of activists across Maryland worked to protect Maryland from fracking. These actions threaten our water and health and move Maryland backward on climate.”
