Proposed Tax Breaks for Natural Gas Industry Are Bad Deal for Pennsylvanians


The General Assembly is now considering several proposals to enact a tax on natural gas production (called a severance tax), as is done in 28 of the 32 gas-producing states. Pennsylvania is the only mineral-rich state that levies no type of severance tax and the largest natural gas-producing state without one.Enacting the severance tax on natural gas extraction, is the responsible thing to do for the citizens of Pennsylvania.
