Gutting of PA local zoning will embolden Big Gas Mafia. Get ready Texans

Get ready Texas. They are coming after us next.

Another big gas giveaway: PA legislature guts zoning rights

With their votes in favor of a bill called HB1950, these legislators have done away with zoning rightsdesigned to give communities the ability to protect health, property, and quality of life. In so doing, they effectively told the gas industry it’s just fine to drill anywhere, anytime—and effectively ignored the flood of phone calls, letters, and rallies from citizens demanding that they “kill the bill.”

If you are not on our alert list, please look in the right column and sign up. We need to get ready. They try this every year in Texas.
