Holding up a golden trophy similar to those presented to Hollywood stars, SEPTA union president Roger Tauss said Gould was a fitting recipient of an Oscar "for performing a role of someone who's supposed to be interested in safety.

THE Daily News ' editorial, "Hush, Doctors: Gas industry gags physicians" is false and shows a lack of understanding by the Daily News and Sen. Leach of Act 13's disclosure provisions. Some due diligence would have revealed that Act 13 contains one of the nation's most forward-thinking disclosure requirements. Our law, which provides for disclosure through the publicly accessible online database known as FracFocus.org, was modeled after Colorado's new law. The Colorado law was embraced by a broad spectrum of environmental groups, such as the Environmental Defense Fund.
