Range Resources requests meeting with South Fayette

Natural gas drilling company Range Resources has requested a meeting with South Fayette commissioners and staff, township officials said Wednesday.
Jim Cannon, Range's local government relations manager, sent a letter asking for the opportunity to discuss what township manager Ryan Eggleston called "the current state of affairs."
Range Resource's legal challenge of the township's Marcellus Shale regulations has been stayed in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, pending the outcome of a lawsuit by South Fayette and other parties against Act 13, the state's drilling law, township attorney Jonathan Kamin said.
Last week, the state Public Utility Commission issued an official opinion that South Fayette's drilling ordinance conflicts with state law and therefore is ineligible to receive about $2,700 from impact fee dollars.
