Chance for Marcellus Shale Legislation Approval in Pennsylvania Before Year's End


The Pennsylvania House and Senate approved separate versions of legislation to strengthen environmental rules surrounding drilling in the Marcellus Shale, and to impose a per-well impact fee to fund local infrastructure. The state Senate approved its version of the bill on November 15; the state House approved its version on November 17.

Legislative sources say that a proposal could be agreed to before the end of the year, but differences in the versions still need to be ironed out among both chambers and Pennsylvania Governor Corbett's office.
