PA Health Officials Probe Effects of Gas Drilling

07.17.14 | FL News Team

  The head of Pennsylvania's Department of Health says its experts are responding to health complaints related to natural gas drilling, but there is no quick and easy way to answer questions about the issue. Health Secretary Michael Wolf tells The Associated Press that the department is working to do research with other public and private partners, such as hospitals. Wolf's predecessor said last week that the state has failed to seriously study the potential health impacts of drilling.
