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 attendees tips for avoiding clashes with protesters who plan to demonstrate Wednesday outside the Convention Center. Gov. Corbett is scheduled to speak 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.
