Bucks and Montco approve moratorium

http://www.phillyburbs.com/my_town/palis...37c134a187.html

Nockamixon solicitor Jordan Yeager said that there was drilling in Nockamixon in the mid-1980s and that authorities have known there was gas underground in the Palisades School District area. He said the only news is that the USGS has attempted to quantify the amount of gas.

"The deep shale drilling that's being proposed in Nockamixon is indistinguishable from the deep shale drilling that's being done in other parts of the state,'' said Yeager. "If we recognize that it needs more study here in order to feel comfortable that we're doing it safely, we ought to recognize that it needs more study in the rest of the state, as well."

THE REAL REASON! JUST A FOOT IN THE DOOR.

"They don't want (the provision) because they want a whole statewide moratorium," he said. "I don't think I can get enough votes together to now just put a moratorium across the entire Marcellus Shale."
