Suspend the state licenses of businesses that engage in fracking. The Sec. of State is tasked with the processing of state business licenses. A primary role of Government is to protect the public from harm. Fracking is known to harm water quality, which in turn risks health. It would be negligent to allow unregulated fracking to continue. The Governor should suspend fracking in California until consensus can be reached on an appropriate course of action. As Sec. of State I would establish departmental policy to limit fracking as much as possible in California.
