MSC pleased by Pennsylvania's no-severance budget bills

By Bob Downing Published: July 2, 2014

From the Pittsburgh-based Marcellus Shale Coalition after the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed budget bills with no severance tax on drilling:

Marcellus Shale Coalition president Dave Spigelmyer issued the following statement on Pennsylvania’s recently passed budget agreement:

“While the budget-making process can be challenging at times, with competing interests at odds far too often, our industry is very pleased that the General Assembly once again made Pennsylvania’s economic growth and private-sector job creation tied to shale development a key priority. New and even higher energy taxes, rammed through without meaningful analysis, could undercut this positive and shared economic progress.

“We look forward to continue working closely with our elected leaders to make certain that we have common sense policies in place that enable Pennsylvania to remain a top energy-producing state and an even better place to invest and grow jobs.”
