PennFuture responds to Attorney General's criminal conviction of fracking company

On June 12, PennFuture issued the following statement in response to Attorney General Josh Shapiro's criminal conviction of Range Resources:

“The Attorney General’s investigation further confirms a basic truth about the fracked gas industry: time and again, it chooses profit margins over the health of Pennsylvanians, our environment, and our natural resources,” said PennFuture President and CEO Jacquelyn Bonomo. “This careless industry’s agenda is finally being pulled back and exposed. It’s an agenda that reveals a company that does not have the public’s best interest in mind, that runs roughshod over our precious land and water resources, and one that has been protected by its boosters in the state legislature for far too long. We thank the Attorney General for protecting our constitutional rights to clean air and pure water, and for showing that the actions of the fracked gas industry speak louder than its words.”
