SB 1137 – Senate Floor

Ending Neighborhood Oil Drilling

More than 2.7 million Californians live within 3,200 feet of an operational oil or gas well, exposing them to toxic air pollution, contaminated water, and a long list of serious and life-threatening health problems. SB 1137 protects and prioritizes the health of frontline communities by creating a 3,200-foot health and safety setback between homes, schools, childcare facilities, playgrounds, hospitals, nursing homes, and other sensitive places — and oil and gas wells. The passage of this bill will ultimately put an end to oil drilling in neighborhoods.
