On March 16, 2012, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission entered a Tentative Implementation Order that addresses the PUC's proposed procedures to carry out its administrative responsibilities under Chapter 23 (local impact fee) and Chapter 33 (local ordinances) of Act 13 of 2012, the Unconventional Gas Well Impact Fee Act.
