Legislative Update: Pa.


According to insiders, with regard to a Pennsylvania severance tax, Governor Corbett will be holding firm on “no state tax, no local fee,” although it is likely that the legislature will nevertheless offer up a “local impact assessment” bill. Governor Corbett will also soon be announcing appointments for a Marcellus Shale commission to study and make recommendations to the administration regarding potential legislative issues including pooling, water and environmental matters, and safety issues. The committee will likely be made up of both industry representatives and environmental leaders.
