Marcellus Legislative Study Group To Consider Final Amendments On Sunday

Members of the Legislature's special Marcellus study group are scheduled to convene on Sunday to consider four final amendments.

Many of the provisions of the proposed bill are ones that will add new burdensome requirements and costs on horizontal producers. One pending amendment that will be considered during Sunday's meeting involves giving added rights to surface owners. Click to read more in this story in The Register-Herald.
