It is time that each and every board of supervisors, and/or commissioners in Pennsylvania DEMAND that Marcellus Shale drillers and Frackers become seriously regulated and pass a law that communities can write ordinances and laws that allow them to control these gas predators.

Hey Representative T. Mark Mustio and John Pippy, of the Moon Township district, it is time that YOU BOTH demand such controls.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corrupt-bett (Corbett) has handed over Western Pennsylvania to these drilling predators.

Range Resources is a predator!!! They are evil and dangerous.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A major Marcellus Shale drilling company is challenging a southwestern Pennsylvania township’s ordinance to regulate oil and gas well development.
Range Resources-Appalachia filed the notice challenging the validity of the ordinance approved last year by South Fayette Township, a Pittsburgh suburb.
The ordinance requires drillers to obtain a land operations permit for each well, and creates buffers around schools, hospitals and certain types of businesses.
Range Resources contends the ordinance is illegal because it says a state law that regulates drilling pre-empts and supersedes it.
As such, Range Resources says it is being “deprived of its legal right to develop its oil and natural gas property interests” on about 4,000 acres it has leased in the township.
The township’s manager did not immediately return a call and e-mail for comment.
