According to a recent article published by the Philidelphia's Inquirer... Seven municipalities in Pennsylvania have banded together in recent weeks to oppose Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale gas-drilling law. All seven municipalities filed suit Thursday, challenging whether the state is authorized to supersede local regulation of drilling.

The municipalities are Yardley and Nockamixon in Bucks County and five southwestern Pennsylvania towns. They were joined in the suit by a Monroeville doctor, environmental activists from the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, and a handful of municipal officials contesting the law in their personal capacities.
