PHILADELPHIA — Pennoni Associates’ President and CEO Anthony S. Bartolomeo, P.E., was named to the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission created by Gov. Tom Corbett.
The governor announced the creation of the commission as part of his 2011-12 budget address to the General Assembly in Harrisburg. Bartolomeo, who serves as the chairman of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, is one of 30 individuals drawn from the environmental community, state and local government, and the natural gas industry statewide. The commission will be led by Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley.
The purpose of the governor’s advisory commission is to address the needs and impacts of natural gas development on local communities, as well as promote the efficient, environmentally sound and cost-effective development of Marcellus shale and other natural gas resources. The commission is to report to Gov. Corbett with its findings by late July.
