While I will 100% agree that burning natural gas, and domestic natural gas at that, is better than burning oil; the drilling industry needs to do more to operate in a safe manner. A quick read on the subject:http://www.pennenvironment.org/programs/pae/keep-pennsylvania-safe-drillingAlso, the low level of taxation placed on gas extraction in PA needs to be raised. The state also might consider nationalizing, or whatever the state-level equivalent of nationalization is, the gas resources contained on our public lands. Considering we have some tough budget questions ahead, some extra $ would be helpful.
Raise an extraction tax, watch another state undercut us. The tax is being kept low because jobs are actually being filled here.
