In a recent op-ed, AFSCME Executive Director David Fillman claims Pennsylvania’s shale drillers are not paying their “fair share” due to the lack of a natural gas severance tax.
Month: June 2015
After the 2008 report by Terry Engelder (a leading authority on Marcellus shale) regarding the vast amounts of natural gas theoretically recoverable in the Marcellus formation, suddenly the economic future of our region has changed for the better.
At the Marcellus Shale job fair Thursday in Pittsburgh Mills mall, A.J. Flick was looking for the right fit.
Recently, Gov. Tom Wolf sent a letter to 17 business advocacy groups opposing his proposed severance tax on natural gas, accusing them of siding “with corporate special interests who simply seek to oppose progress and real economic development.”
Dear Gov. Wolf: I took an Advanced Placement economics class at Bethel Park High School during my senior year.
We need policies that will grow Pennsylvania’s natural gas infrastructure to secure our status as a world-class energy hub.
We all remember positively the Spirit of ’76, when Americans declared Independence!
In 1973, President Richard Nixon promised the American people energy independence within 10 years.
Gov. Tom Wolf wants to impose a billion-dollar energy tax increase on our state.
The truth about Gov. Tom Wolf’s severance tax proposal is that it not only threatens thousands of Pennsylvania jobs and discourages investment in Pennsylvania, but most importantly takes away money from our local communities.
