Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission
Members Rack Up Violations
Eight of the drilling companies with representatives on the commission were cited with environmental violations last year.
"One of them led the state in violations. All of them
contributed to Gov. Tom Corbett's campaign."
"That lends ammunition to environmentalists’ complaint that
Corbett populated the commission henhouse
with industry foxes favored for their largesse
rather than careful business practices."
"Industry officials say the representatives
bring valuable expertise and talent to the panel."
Yeah...of course they do
Chief Oil & Gas - 174 violations
East Resources - 74 violations
Exxon Mobil - 66 violations
Range Resources - 32 violations
Chevron - 16 violations
EQT - 15 violations
Consol - 5 violations

Let's not forget Chesapeake...
"Chesapeake Energy had the third-highest number of violations at 132; Chesapeake’s vice president of government relations, Dave Spigelmyer, was appointed to the commission, but chose to step off prior to the beginning of its work."
"Most famously, Corbett received a $480,000 contribution from Chesapeake Energy’s Audrey McClendon – funneled through a national Republican political committee – just before the 2004 Attorney General election. Corbett has appointed a Chesapeake Energy executive to serve on the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission."

Ain't as easy as it seems
