PA. HOUSE COMMITTEE TAKES STEPS TO BROADEN ENERGY PRODUCTION

The Pennsylvania House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee has passed several measures to ramp up domestic energy production across the state. Included in the legislation is a measure asking the governors of New York and New Jersey to end anti-pipeline policies that are currently blocking Pennsylvania natural gas from reaching markets in New England. Other legislation would increase the production and exportation of energy products. One of those would open the Delaware River Basin for natural gas development and exploration.
