News Nearby: South Fayette Joins Challenge to Marcellus Shale Law
The board voted unanimously on Wednesday to challenge Act 13.
South Fayette commissioners on Wednesday unanimously voted to join other local municipalities in a challenge to the state’s new Marcellus Shale law, known as Act 13.
Peters Township voted to join in the challenge Monday—and Cecil Township, Mt. Pleasant and Robinson Township have also signed on.
Cecil Township Solicitor John Smith has said he believes that parts of the legislation are constitutionally challengeable.
Peters Council plans to formally address the motion at Monday's meeting—7:30 p.m. in council chambers—because it's intended action was not given the necessary 24 hours.
