Backing Off Fracking

A proposed Senate bill would halt the issuance of permits for fracking and create a commission to analyze oil and gas drilling in Pennsylvania. 38th District Senator Jim Ferlo introduced Senate Bill 1100 which would establish a moratorium on issuing permits for hydraulic fracturing in Pennsylvania. Ferlo said his bill would not undo the 14,000 permits already issued. Senate Bill 1100 would also create a seven-person commission to analyze the agricultural, economic, environmental and social impacts of oil and gas drilling.
