Governor Quinn: Stop the Mississippi Sand Frac Sand Mine Near Starved Rock!

Illinois is quickly becoming overtaken by fracking juggernauts, who have no aim, but the pursuit of the profit motive. Despite those who believe the Starved Rock frac sand mine will prove beneficial, in truth, sand mining for the purpose of hydraulic fracturing will result in calamitous long-term repercussions for Starved Rock State Park’s tourism, local residents, and animals’ and peoples’ health (silicosis, cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, etc.) as well as the overall environment. I want to see a greener, more energy independent horizon for LaSalle County, and for Illinois and America at large, but this debasement is not the way!
