McGarrigle Hails Severance Tax on Drilling as Part of State Revenue Plan

Great News from Media's State Senator Tom McGarrigle

“When I sought this Senate seat, I pledged to make securing a severance tax on gas drilling a top priority. It is a responsible way to generate desperately needed revenue for schools and other Commonwealth obligations,” said McGarrigle. “This is a reasonable levy, at a rate lower than the Governor and many others sought. It allows the Pennsylvania natural gas industry to produce energy and jobs while helping us meet our needs in the classroom. It ensures Pennsylvania is no longer the only state that doesn’t require drillers to pay their fair share.”
