Capitol Rotunda Harrisburg, PA
United States

From the Calendar at Protecting Our Waters:

One of the worst features of SB1100/HB1950, Corbett's omnibus bill, is that it completely removes from all local governments the ability to regulate the placement of gas operations -- wells, pipelines, compressor stations -- anywhere within their boundaries.

Be in Harrisburg - Stop Takeover of Municipalities

From Delaware Riverkeeper:
"Join us in Harrisburg to Stop State and Gas Driller Takeover of Municipalities"

1/17/12 at 11:00 am - Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg

The Pennsylvania Legislature ended 2011 by attempting to pass bills (SB 1100 & HB 1950) that would allow the state to take away a municipality’s power through zoning to determine what is best for its community regarding natural gas operations.

Why should the gas industry get special treatment? How can the Legislature allow the State and drillers to take over our home towns?

Join us on January 17th at 11am in the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg as we welcome the Legislature back from break and deliver the message that they must protect our health, water, air, & communities by opposing legislation that allows the state takeover of municipal rights.
