Poll: Pennsylvanians favor drilling, not in parks

(AP) — Pennsylvanians support drilling for natural gas by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, but a majority is opposed when it occurs under state parks and forests, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Friday. Corbett's order allows drillers to extract natural gas from rock below Pennsylvania's state forests and parks, but it does not permit drilling-related construction that would disturb the parklands above ground. The state's booming natural gas industry has brought jobs and economic activity to the state, but it also has raised concerns about the environmental impact.
