The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has denied a request from Governor Tom Corbett’s administration to reargue the Act 13 case concerning the state’s oil and natural gas drilling law. The court voted 5-1 on Friday, Feb. 21 to deny a request made by the state Department of Environmental Protection and Public Utility Commission, which argued that more evidence should be considered by the court.

The court issued the order stating, “the application for reargument or reconsideration of the opinions entered by this Court on December 19, 2013 is denied.”
