Gov. Scranton signed into law Tuesday a bill prohibiting rainmaking or other weather tampering in counties where Ihe county commissioners would consider such activity detrimental. The act is e f f e c t i v e immediately. Violation of the law is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than $1,000 and-or imprisonment not more than one year. The bill prohibits certain weather modification activities whenever the county commissioners shall adopt a resolution stating that such action is detrimental to the welfare of the county. This bill was one of several on the controversial matter introduced in the state legislature this session. Provisions of the measure prohibit use of airplanes or ground based generators. The act bans such a c t i v i t y as rainmaking, cloud-seeding and hail chasing in those counties where the commissioners would object.
