Gas Drilling Tax Debate In Pennsylvania Goes On

The debate over the fairness of imposing a gas drilling severance and or property tax in Pennsylvania continues. Tax proponents cite all other gas producing states and the fact that all, including Texas–with gas property and severance tax revenues estimating four (4) billion dollars per year—have imposed taxes..  Gas drilling industry insiders cite the need to freely permit the gas drilling industry in Pennsylvania to take root, expand on the 3000 plus drill sites already in production and expand infrastructure including pipe lines without burdening the gas industry with over taxation.  The issue continues to be debated in Harrisburg and at the local level.  DLP. Pennsylvania truck accident lawyers and Pennsylvania gas drilling rig accident/injury lawyers continue to monitor this and other gas drilling rig industry issues.
