Natural gas development in the Marcellus Shale is a "game changer." Pipelines in your communities are a significant part of this change. The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania(LWVPA), through a grant from the Department of Transportation, will be presenting a Primer on Pipelines on Saturday, February 22 at 9:30 am at the Mifflin Library, 6 Philadelphia Ave. Shillington
Dr. Roberta Winters, coordinator of the League's statewide studies on natural gas extraction from Marcellus Shale and pipelines, will be focusing on "An Ounce of Prevention." Learn about the basic components of the infrastructure, your role in assuring pipeline safety, the agencies responsible for its oversight and siting, and resources to help with planning for pipelines in your neighborhood.
In this time of heightened partisanship, gridlock between policy makers and increased frustration among the public, the need for the reasoned, factual and civil voice of the League of Women Voters has never been more urgent. As a member, you can be a crucial part of our non-partisan, hands-on work in Berks County to safeguard democracy and create lasting change.
