Keegan Gibson says Kevin Deely is trying to make an issue out of Justin Simmons’ vote for Act 13. Have at it, but it’s funny that there’s no shale gas under that district, as far as I know:
HD-131: Dem candidate Kevin Deely has called on Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh) to retract his support of Act 13, which allowed for the circumvention of local zoning ordinances in order to expand natural gas drilling (parts of the act were recently repealed). Deely said he’d spoken with frustrated constituents, who didn’t want their roads destroyed, water supply threatened or risk losing value in their homes. Deely added that he isn’t opposed to fracking, but that it should be done responsibly and with environmental protection in mind.
