Good news, until it's pushed to SCOTUS...Let's hope more state Supreme Courts have the gutsto do the same thing. The more states doing this, the better. Is nice to see Big Oil & Gas, and their billions, lose, even temporarily.

What's the Halliburton Loophole, from the comments there??

Indeed this is HUGE! They've ruined most of Pennsylvania anyway with it's rubber stamp granting of frack permits. I hope they can expand it to other things besides fracking and expand it to other states as well. Wouldn't that be lovely.

Also.. isn't it weird that we would be worried that the government would think other wise?
How the gov't has disappointed us in the past. Well.. this is a good step forward.
