A group of environmental activists and others briefly disrupted the second meeting of Gov. Corbett's Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission this morning with loud protests and demands to be heard.
The activists believe the commission is stacked with industry representatives rather than real people affected by drilling and should be immediately disbanded.
The commission was assembled by Corbett to advise him on the impact of drilling in the Marcellus Shale. The commission is expected to make its recommendations by July, including whether to impose any levy on natural gas extraction.
