The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission was ordered Friday by a state judge to stop reviewing or challenging municipal ordinances that affect natural gas drilling, the same day the agency admitted to miscalculating how much money some municipalities will receive from the drilling industry.

PUC spokeswoman Jennifer Kocher could not say exactly how the error occurred or which municipalities were affected.

Kocher also declined to comment on the order by Commonwealth Court Senior Judge Keith Quigley.
