State Senator From Conejo Valley Pushing For Aliso Canyon Moratorium

Posted on Monday, February 22, 2016 12:52am

A State Senator from the Conejo Valley is pushing her efforts today to get a moratorium on the operation of gas wells in the Porter Ranch area until their safety can be verified by experts.

State Senator Fran Pavley of Agoura Hills co-authored SB 380, which was approved by the State Senate, and is set to be heard by the Assembly Utilities and Commerce Committee this afternoon.  It was prompted by the months long gas leak which displaced numerous families in the community.

It calls for a moratorium on injections into the Aliso Canyon facility, as well as extractions until three state agencies certify its safety to resume operations.
