Is Property Still a Local Institution?

The New York Times runs an important story on the increasing tension between states and local governments over control of shale gas drilling:

The battle is playing out in Pennsylvania as the Republican-controlled legislature considers bills that would in their current form sharply limit a community’s right to control where gas companies can operate on private property. Critics say the final bill could vastly weaken local zoning powers and give industry the upper hand in exchange for a new tax, which municipalities badly need.
