AB 345:

Oil & Gas Health and Safety Buffer Zones


Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi

Would have established health and safety buffer zones surrounding oil and gas drilling by requiring a minimum setback distance between oil and gas facilities and sensitive sites such as homes, schools, daycares, playgrounds, hospitals, and health clinics. The passage of this bill would have brought us closer to protecting children and families from the hazards of living near oil and gas sites.
