PA DEP Extends Roadshow for Public Comment on New Drilling Rules
Roadshow! The Pennsylvania Environmental Quality Board (EQB), a division of the state Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP), has been in the midst of a 60-day tour, visiting different locations across the state, to elicit public comment on proposed new Marcellus Shale drilling rules called for under the Act 13 law passed in early 2012 (see PA DEP Launches Public Comments on New Drilling Rules, Roadshow).
Must be the EQB is having fun because they’ve just extended the roadshow for another 30 days. Instead of wrapping up public comments on the proposed new drilling rules by Feb. 12, the new deadline will be Mar. 14. Oh, and they’ve added a couple of more stops to the roadshow tour: Troy and Warren, PA. Here’s the EQB roadshow extension announcement:
