Sen. Pileggi: Marcellus Shale Legislation, Possibly An Impact Fee Will Pass This Fall
Sen. Pileggi

Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi (R-Delaware) told a natural gas industry conference on Thursday he thought broad Marcellus Shale regulatory legislative and possibly a drilling impact fee will pass the General Assembly this Fall.

           At the same conference, Rep. Mike Hanna (D-Centre) was quoted as saying the Marcellus Shale industry should release Gov. Corbett from his "no-tax pledge" so the state could pass a natural gas severance tax.
            Sen. Pileggi said he intends to work with the Governor to find something he could sign.
            The Tribune Review also reported this week legislation to give the state more authority to regulate the safety of natural gas pipelines was also going to be a priority, according to comments by Rep. Sandra Major (R-Susquehanna).
