    Grassroots Coalition Fights Big Oil Efforts To Keep Permit Loophole Avoiding Environmental Review

    News Release

    Ventura, CA —  In a virtual press conference, the VC-SAFE (Ventura County Save Agriculture and Freshwater for Everyone) coalition will launch its campaign to vote “yes” on Measures A and B, initiatives that would prevent oil and gas companies from using antiquated permits as old as one hundred years to drill in Ventura County. That initiative is currently being challenged by the oil and gas industry.


    The Ventura County Board of Supervisors voted in favor of the proposal in November 2020. Three days after that decision, Aera Energy contributed $1 million to an industry-led committee fighting the ordinance. By January 2021, the committee had secured enough signatures to place the issue back on the ballot in the form of Measures A and B.
