Babst Calland: Legislation Concerning Seismic Testing in Pennsylvania to be Introduced

By Joshua F. Hall

On April 24, 2014, Representative Robert Matzie of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, indicated in a statement that he will introduce legislation concerning liability for damage caused by a party conducting seismic testing.  The statement indicates that the soon to be proposed legislation will seek to create a rebuttable presumption of liability for any damage occurring within 90 days of the completion of the testing, and within a 1,000 foot radius of where the testing occurs.
