DRBC Presses Forward – Special Mtg to Ban Fracking in Dela. Basin

What is it with the recalcitrant members of the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC)? As we told you a few weeks ago, the DRBC is being sued by a Wayne County, PA landowner–who stands an excellent chance of winning (see DRBC Frack Ban Heading for Defeat in October Trial). The lawsuit argues DRBC does NOT have the authority to classify shale gas drilling as a “project” under its charter, and consequently, DRBC does not have the right nor the authority to ban fracking in the Basin. Yet DRBC has just announced its commissioners will meet (virtually) next week to finalize their ongoing moratorium of fracking into a full-on, permanent ban.
