Free Webinar: PA Supreme Court on Act 13 – Round 2 (Fracking) | Delaware Riverkeeper Network

On September 28, 2016 the Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued its 2nd decision in Robinson Township, Delaware Riverkeeper Network, et al v. Commonwealth, declaring that sections of Act 13 that remained in dispute are unconstitutional and enjoined. The Court found: the medical “Gag Rule” which limited physicians’ access and use of information about fracking chemicals to which their patients may have been exposed to be a “special law” and therefore unconstitutional; that PADEP notification of chemical spills by drillers must include both private well owners and public water supplies or it is unconstitutional; that the PUC lacks the authority to declare oil and gas municipal zoning ordinances invalid or to make these municipalities ineligible to receive impact fees; and that private corporations cannot use eminent domain to seize land for storing natural gas for private gain as it constitutes a taking.
