Governor Newsom’s announcement on Friday regarding his upcoming executive order to ban fracking will further divide California into regions of haves and have-nots. The proposed ban on fracking will mean job losses, increased gas and food prices making life that much harder for Californians.
Senate Republican Leader Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) released the following statement:
In 2019, the oil and gas production industry was responsible for 50,100 jobs, $19 billion in economic output, and $4.4 billion in labor income. It also provided $1.5 billion in taxes, fees, and other revenues to state and local governments in the 2019-20 fiscal year.
Senator Wilk represents the 21st Senate District, which includes the Antelope, Santa Clarita and Victor valleys. Learn more about Scott by visiting his website and be sure to connect with him on social media.
