Last year California celebrated a major victory in the passing of SB 1137 (Gonzalez, Limon), a bill meant to ensure that oil companies wouldn’t be able to drill new oil wells within 3,200 feet of vulnerable locations such as hospitals and schools.
SB 1137, meant to take effect January 2023, requires oil and gas companies to keep their drilling at least 3200 ft from hospitals, schools and other vulnerable areas. Big Oil responded by filing a referendum just 3 days after it was signed into law. If they collect enough signatures, the measure will be stalled until 2024.
