Proposed Panel To Review Public Health Impact From Drilling

The Republic reports that Senator Joe Scarnati, R-Jefferson, recently introduced Senate Bill 555.  The bill would create a health advisory panel to review public health data for areas where shale gas extraction occurs and determine the health impacts and benefits such operations.  The Governor’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission suggested creating a permanent health advisory panel.
