Statement from the NC Sierra Club on the Override of Governor Perdue’s Veto of S 820
 
Raleigh -   After tonight’s vote, Molly Diggins, State Director of the NC Sierra Club said, “It's disappointing that the House leadership took advantage of a procedural error to override the Governor's veto. Our drinking water has now been put at risk--even though the required three-fifths of the members did not want to override."  
 
"How ironic that in an industry plagued with accidents, hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking' today become legal in North Carolina based on a accidental vote.”
