October 11, 2019


A STATE SENATOR IS PROPOSING A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT WILL IMPACT THE INDUSTRY IN THIS REGION. IT WOULD ELIMINATE FRACKING IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA. Reporter: FRACKING FOR NATURAL GAS IN THE MARCELLA SHALE HAS BEEN A SOURCE OF JOBS AND DOLLARS FOR MANY IN SOUTHWESTERN AND SYLVANIA. NOW A PHILADELPHIA STATE SENATOR SAYS THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY FRACKING OUTWEIGHS ANY ECONOMIC BENEFIT. AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU WANT THE INDUSTRY TO DO WELL, BUT WE CAN’T DO THAT AT THE EXPENSE OF PEOPLE’S HEALTH PERSPECTIVE THE SENATOR IS PROPOSING A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO BAN FRACKING THROUGHOUT THE COMMONWEALTH. AFTER A VISIT TO THIS AREA. I RECENTLY TOOK A TOUR OF A NUMBER OF FRACKING SITES, AND I MET WITH A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO LIVE NEAR THOSE SITES, AND HEARD THEIR STORIES. AND IT WAS REALLY SHOCKING. HE CITES CASES OF CANCER, SKIN AND RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS, AND EVEN DEAD ANIMALS. BUT THE PRESIDENT OF THE MARCELLA SHALE COALITION DISPUTES THOSE CLAIMS. THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH HAS STUDIED THIS, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO STUDY IT, TO DATE THEY HAVE NOT FOUND A SINGLE LINK THAT WOULD PROVIDE VALIDITY TO THAT KIND OF REPORT OR STATEMENT. THE ABUNDANT NATURAL GAS HERE HAS REDUCED HOME GAS BILLS, 70%, AND –‘S WE’VE GOT INCREDIBLE JOB WEALTH. MACKEY SAYS THIS CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT HAS BROAD IMPLICATIONS PERSPECTIVE YOU NOT ONLY KILL THE NATURAL GAS INDUSTRY, BUT YOU KILL THE JOB
