Health study outlined in fracking moratorium; Proposed senate legislation also highlights health

The issue contains 13 articles that cover various topics including the impacts on health, the impact on the dairy industry in Pennsylvania, and financial impacts, with an article from by Jannette Barth, Ph.D, an economist with a home in Delaware County, NY.
