Citizens Allied for Integrity and Accountability, Inc. – CAIA – was begun in 2015 as an all-volunteer Idaho non-profit and became a federal 501c3 in 2016.
CAIA continues to be composed solely of volunteers who are concerned about the heavy industrial gas & oil development being impinged upon both suburban and rural neighborhoods in Idaho. Such areas are growing steadily in southern Idaho, and we are in the process of disseminating a model protective ordinance to counties and cities around the state. …For local jurisdictions must safeguard their citizens and land holdings as effectively as possible by this means, or pay such consequences as have been seen over 30 states of the U.S.: in issues of both public and personal property, health, environment, and general quality of life (see The List of the Harmed for real-life examples). And citizens need to be aware of the impacts on their communities, their properties, and their health, safety, mortgages, and way of life once drilling and infrastructure comes into their vicinity.
We put on presentations and community forums, communicate with state and local officials, and publish documentation and write articles in order to reach people who are yet not even aware that there will be gas industry development with consequences in their area, nor of how it may affect them personally.
CAIA is neither politically partisan nor anti-energy – we are pro safety, and pro local control.
Now is the time to learn from experienced oil & gas areas and do it right.
We hope you’ll join us.
