The organizers of next week's shale-gas conference in Philadelphia are gearing up security precautions for protests at the two-day event.
The Shale Gas Insight conference, sponsored by the Marcellus Shale Coalition to promote natural-gas drilling, on Thursday sent tips to attendees to avoid clashes with protesters who plan to demonstrate outside the Pennsylvania Convention Center next Wednesday. Gov. Corbett is scheduled to speak on Thursday.
"All indications are the protest will be compliant with all local laws and regulations," the industry conference wrote in an e-mail to attendees.
