Oil, gas industry groups seek to join Pa. lawsuit (to protect fracking)

Source: AP

PITTSBURGH (AP) A coalition of oil and gas industry companies is challenging a group of municipalities who are suing the state of Pennsylvania over a new law that aims to regulate gas drilling.

The Pennsylvania Oil and Gas Association, the Marcellus Shale Coalition and several companies filed a legal petition Thursday morning, seeking to intervene in the lawsuit filed by municipalities last week.

The municipalities want an injunction stopping the law from taking effect and, ultimately, for it to be struck down.

The new petition from the oil and gas industry groups says that overturning the new state law, known as Act 13, would negatively impact the industry. Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republican, supports the industry's objectives in Act 13, which is scheduled to take effect in mid-April.
