An attorney within the natural gas drilling industry said he hopes for quick action on an appeal of a Commonwealth Court ruling that overturned a local zoning provision in Act 13, the recently approved Marcellus Shale drilling law.

The Corbett administration has appealed the ruling to the state Supreme Court.
