Corbett reasserts position against local drilling controls

Corbett reasserts position on drilling consistency
Thursday, February 02, 2012

HARRISBURG -- Gov. Tom Corbett is reinforcing his position that local rules for natural-gas drillers need to be more uniform across the state, and now is speaking favorably of the proposal to do so that passed the House and Senate late last year.

With lawmakers aiming to vote on a compromise Marcellus bill as soon as next week, the governor penned a letter to all 253 members, calling it "paramount" that the measure address variations in local zoning ordinances.

He stated that 145 oil and gas ordinances have been adopted in 115 Pennsylvania towns, and he argues that the most restrictive of those -- a reference to complete bans, like Pittsburgh's -- are "depriving citizens of jobs, income and enjoyment of their own property rights."

The further removed from local control and regulation, the more likely abuses will occur. People should have the right to decide what is best for their local communities; it's sometimes the only protection we have from powerful interests, and not just the extraction industry. It's not surprising our governor wants to surrender our rights to his corporate benefactors. But he's wrong. And just the opposite of what he says is true for people who want to enjoy a different way of life; they are deprived of their property rights, surface rights, clean air, and water along with their peace of mind.

I for one am glad that our local council/township (officals) will have no say! The ones in my area would sell everyones soul if it would fill their pocket!

Hey 9:45am Just what do you think YOUR governor is doing?

9:45 I think the folks in Harrisburg did just that. You can always get an audience with local officials, and it's easier to vote them out. Since they live in the impact zone, they tend to care more because they have more skin in the game. Wake up dude.
