House Environmental Committee Postpones Meeting On Bill To Implement Governor’s Oil & Gas Well Permitting Reforms

Rep. John Maher (R-Allegheny), Majority Chair of the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, late Monday announced on the House Floor he has postponed the meeting scheduled for June 12 on House Bill 2304 (Fritz-R-Susquehanna) which would enact the oil and gas well permitting reforms proposed by Gov. Wolf in January.
Rep. Maher said the postponement was to allow time to determine why the Wolf Administration is opposed to the bill.
The well permitting changes in the bill include those proposed in a DEP permitting reform white paper authorizing permitting of multiple wells on one pad with one application, allow adjustments to the well bore location by up to 50 feet without permit amendments and eliminate the requirement a well be constructed in one year and replace it with a 3-year term.
