Legislatures Question revenue projections from proposed PA severance tax


The billion dollar annual revenue projection a severance tax is highly unlikely, particularly, with gas prices being where they are currently.   This billion dollar number is just an estimate and not realistic.    I continue to be very concerned that any severance tax in PA will harm the natural gas industry.   This will result in a loss of jobs.   We need more manufacturing, not less.

Support for natural gas tax declines when tied to job losses


It is very important to talk about employment and job losses when there is any discussion about a severance tax in Pennsylvania.  We need natural gas jobs and the potential for additional manufacturing from natural gas development in Pennsylvania.
