PA: record natgas production, no severance tax

It's hardly the case that the former is because of the latter, as the industry endlessly suggests. (Hint: PA's Marcellus is the largest gas-in-place reservoir in the US - and maybe on earth.) The imposition of a severance tax in Pennsylvania would change nothing - except improve the state's fiscal health, and silly, nonessential things like public education.

  1. Just found this blog, and this is outrageous. Mr. Quigley, is there any current legislative action toward a severance tax? Profiting from PUBLIC lands should benefit the PUBLIC.
