From the fact sheet:

As the Pennsylvania legislature works to reconcile Senate and House bills on natural gas development, lawmakers are being asked to trade municipal rights for limited impacts  fees and regulatory changes.  That's why residents, local government officials, and organizations across the Commonwealth oppose the bills.  They are asking -- through letters, phone  calls, visits, petitions and rallies -- that state legislators do the same and vote "NO" if a final bill with these provisions comes to the floor.
