Frack Sand Petition

The Citizens Frack Sand Summit in Winona earlier this month has resulted in a petition drive urging Governor Mark Dayton to protect Minnesota from the frack sand industry.          
The Land Stewardship Project says over 225 people attended the summit at the Tau Center on January 18th, where the petition drive was launched.

Governor Dayton has come out previously as calling for a ban on frack sand mining in southeastern Minnesota. The petition supports that policy and calls for Dayton to take action.

According to a press release, the goal of the Land Stewardship Project is to get 5,000 signatures in the next three months.

The petition is available online at
