    1    Section 1. There is hereby established a suspension of the issuance of

    3  hydraulic fracturing for the purpose of stimulating natural gas  or  oil
    4  in  low  permeability  natural gas reservoirs, such as the Marcellus and
    5  Utica shale formations.
    6    The purpose of such suspension shall be to afford the  state  and  its
    7  residents  the  opportunity  to  continue the review and analysis of the
    8  effects of hydraulic fracturing on water and air quality,  environmental
    9  safety and public health.
   10    For  the  purposes  of this section, "hydraulic fracturing" shall mean
   11  the fracturing of rock by fluid for the purpose of  stimulating  natural
   12  gas or oil for any purpose.
   13    This  section shall not apply to permits issued prior to the effective
   14  date of this act which utilize hydraulic fracturing that are subject  to
   15  renewal.
   16    S  2.  This act shall take effect immediately, and shall expire and be
   17  deemed repealed one year after the effective date of this act.
