Senator Lisa Baker has launched a serious effort to secure justice for the only landowners in Pennsylvania not allowed to sell their Marcellus Shale gas.
Governor Tom Wolf is determined to sell out a part of her district to special interest pleaders for a ban on fracking in the DRBC region. Pennsylvania State Senator Lisa Baker is striking back by going directly to the heart of the matter. She’s introduced legislation telling the governor he can’t sell it unless he buys it. Doing so, she has illustrated the fundamental unfairness of a governor deciding he has the right to pick economic winners and losers within his state. She’s struck a blow for equal justice, not to mention the rule of law.
