Advocates from OH, PA, WV Urge Common Approach to Shale Taxation


Leaders of Policy Matters Ohio, the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center, and the West Virginia Center on Budget & Policy sent a letter to the governors of their three states, urging them to enact a severance tax with a rate no lower than that of West Virginia. Such an approach would ‰”provide important long-term predictability for the industry,‰” and ‰”take taxes out of the competitive equation,‰” they wrote.
