Yesterday, the UDRBC took a stand against the injustice of the proposed DRBC fracking ban. The opposition’s response told us how wrong they know they are.
It was excellent day as Wayne County Commissioner Joe Adams, Betty Sutliff, Marcellus Shale Coalition President Dave Spigelmyer, UDRBC President Ned Land and yours truly testified yesterday before the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee. Betty’s testimony is here, mine is here and the other two testimonies will be posted here tomorrow.
The theme was equal justice, of course, but the subject was the DRBC fracking ban and two pieces of Pennsylvania legislation proposed in response to it; Senator Lisa Baker’s SB 1189 and Rep. Dan Moul’s HB 2222, the latter of which would, based on language in the Delaware River Compact designate Pennsylvania DEP as the prime regulator of natural gas development in the Commonwealth. Both pieces of legislation have obviously made the DRBC and its partners in crime very, very nervous.
