PA Constitution: Is gas drilling constitutional?

William Penn, Founder of Pennsylvania


of the


Article I, Section 27

Natural Resources and the Public Estate
The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the
preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values
of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources
are the common property of all the people, including
generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the
Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the
benefit of all the people.

Well, what do you think?  Is the gas drilling industry following this article in the PA Constitution?  Do the citizens of Pennsylvania have clean air and clean water? Are their natural resources and historic areas being preserved?  What part is the gas industry playing in this?

My name is Nicki Egan and I'm a writer with People magazine. I'd love to get in touch with anyone from Towanda, Pa or nearby that has been impacted by natural gas drilling.
