Hello AGAIN Morgan, As I requested previously Please correct this article. I didn't say any of this and I strongly disagree with "The presumption of liability should always reside with the industry," Please correct THIS ARTICLE. People are continuing to read this and send me links and they are also asking me about this attribution.I am very disappointed that you haven't corrected this in a more timely manner. This has caused my reputation unjust harm in the week since I informed you of your mistake and asked you to correct it.

Causing trouble again I see Bornhere. I love the article about both environmentalist and industry against this. But the article mostly mentions the industry and only one environmental issue.

I forgot 1 little thing who signed Act 13 into Law on Feb. 14, 2012 CORBETT, last time I checked Corbett is still a Republican and not a Democrat.

of course the drillers would object to these regulations....they want to drill, ruin your water and move on. I say "SOCK IT TO THEM" and if they don't like it, get out of PA.

Section 3218 of the Oil and Gas Act specifically says, "that a gas well operator is presumed to be responsible for contamination of any drinking water supply", this is why baseline must be done to rule out any pollution from drilling.

This has nothing to do with "Liberalism", the Section 3218 is part of the Act 13 law.

" The presumption of liability should always reside with the industry," Barr said.

Assuming Guilt until proven innocent is not only bad government....

It's DANGEROUS government...!!

Eric,

I was about to Klick the [ Agree ] button until your ending comment...

"" Liberalism on display, folks! ""

I honestly can't Agree with [your] never ending Political B.S. comment....

Your extreme bias putt's you in the same class as the Liberalism you despise.

Oh well... to each their own..

"The presumption of liability should always reside with the industry," Barr said.

If you are not a "favored" industry, you are guilty until proven innocent.

Liberalism on display, folks!

I attended the meeting.

Both Glen Weaver and Mark Cline made comments regarding shell well drilling that, IMHO, are worthy of further review by the EQB & DEP.

Mark Cline's comments in particular, are worthy of consideration of the public at large. I suggest the SG publish his comments as an op ed.
