Progressive Victories on Fracking & Voter ID from PA Courts

In this video from Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics, I explain recent Pennsylvania court rulings on voting rights and environmental rights that are significant victories for progressives in the state. The first comes from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which struck down one of the most egregious parts of the state’s fracking law that allowed corporations to frack virtually anywhere and blocked municipalities from using local zoning laws to stop them, and the second comes from Commonwealth Court, which ruled that the state’s voter ID law is so harsh it amounts to voter disenfranchisement. I offer some of my own commentary on conservatives’ record of pushing hard for and vociferously defending these laws and how progressives can use that to their advantage.
