Pennsylvania impact fees are having big impact, MSC says

By Bob Downing Published: April 6, 2013

From the Marcellus Shale Coalition, a pro-drilling group in Pennsylvania:

Pittsburgh, Pa. – Marcellus Shale Coalition CEO Kathryn Klaber issued the following statement regarding the release of 2012 impact fee revenue data by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission:
“This is more exciting news for the Commonwealth, with literally every Pennsylvanian benefiting from responsible Marcellus development, even as commodity prices remain at historic lows.
“These funds, in addition to the hundreds of millions in natural gas-related tax revenue, are ensuring that critical projects and investments will continue across the state, regardless of where natural gas production occurs.
“It’s also a stark reminder that these benefits should not be tempered by policies that discourage safe, tightly-regulated natural gas development, especially as it relates to local zoning.”
