Why Can’t Drilling Permits Be Appealed?

Editor, News-Register:

Regarding the Feb. 4 article, “Company, Ohio Group at Odds Over Wastewater,” in the Wheeling News-Register. A group in Athens, Ohio is challenging a permit that was issued for a gas-drilling wastewater (frack water) well. The Ohio Attorney General’s Office told them, “Sorry folks. The group that issues the permits works for God, an drilling permits cannot be appealed.” Straight from the horse’s anatomy.
