California Secretary of State Shirley Weber announced on February 3, 2023 that more than 623,000 valid signatures were gathered. Voters will decide if the bill stays November 5th, 2024. In the meantime, SB 1137 is not currently active.
This pause does not mean the battle is over. Gavin Newsom is sending out emails asking for contributions to “defeat a Big Oil ballot measure.”
It’s a long road with many people loving to hate this vital industry. Stop the Energy Shutdown Campaign could use help in paying back signature gathering loans and educating voters.
So please continue to let people know about this fight, send mineral owners our way, and please donate $25 if you can to the Stop The Energy Shutdown Campaign.
