On this quote from Senator Lisa Baker ", is that eminent domain? And is that a taking of their land rights? And who should pay them for the total loss of exercising their right as land owners? Its a very interesting dynamic in development when we have a state where were saying in 65 counties its OK, but in these weve decided no."

I do not see her or anyone mention the ban in the South Newark Basin. But no doubt the DRC uses the Republican ban as justification, of keeping the river ban in effect.

>>>> Wax, I think a lot of people, including rural land owners in places where natural gas exists in paying quantities, ignored what went on in regards to the South Newark formation.  The attitude was that it was a small area and lying so close to Philadelphia and its suburbs, likely to be a hot spot for NIMBY attitudes which could not be overcome.  As it is turning out killing the drill in Bucks County set up for killing the drill in counties far from Bucks, and if not met forcefully in the courts could even some day result in closing down the industry in places where it has already been established.

Yes ! It is a matter of facts . The DRBC mentions their joint efforts with the South Newark Basin ban, as one in the same.
