Murrysville, PA Supports Marcellus Shale Drilling Moratorium

by Kenneth E. DuBose on July 29, 2010

Murrysville, Pennsylvania votes to support a drilling moratorium in the Marcellus Shale:

Murrysville City Council has unanimously voted to support a request that state Sen. Jim Ferlo, D-Highland Park, made to the Senate for a yearlong moratorium on new Marcellus Shale drilling in Pennsylvania. Murrysville Mayor Bob Brooks drafted a letter to the state Legislature, asking to protect the rights of residents of communities affected by the drilling. “We need some time to figure out where we are at,” he said. “We need to figure out who are the drillers that are legitimate and are reliable versus those that are wildcat in nature.”
