Thanks! but no thanks

<span style="font-style: italic">As the commissioners are divided on the topic, the board has 60 days to vote on the issue. Based on comments of the commissioners over the past two days, it is expected that the fee will not be adopted locally </span>

In my opinion they should vote against it.

Re: Thanks! but no thanks

Saying that any fees or taxes will push the industry from the state is the most "foolish" argument I have ever heard..... They are already pulling up the drill rigs to move to the wet gas and oil areas of the state....gas is at an all time low and it's not profitable to drill. If they do drill they will cap the wells to lock in leases. But they will be back......and the tax payers of this state will be footing the bill for the roads, bridges, cut funding and any mess that's left behind......thank you governor sellout, enjoy your one term.

Re: Thanks! but no thanks

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but when the price is low and they are pulling rigs because the price is low and there is little or no profit for enormous expenditure; is this really the time to single out one industry with more burdensome fees?

As far as the roads and bridges, did the legislature not put enough tax on fuel to cover the expense? ..That's what the high taxes on fuel are for. Or are we overspending and that is why there is not enough money to go around for necessities?

<span style="font-style: italic">Saw this short clip that points out some of the highlites of the bill</span>


Gov. Corbett Signs New Marcellus Drilling Law
2/14/11

No public ceremony for the signing of historic legislation to regulate Marcellus Shale gas drilling in Pennsylvania. Monday evening, Gov. Tom Corbettís office announced he had privately signed the new legislation into law.
Among the key provisions in the final bill:


Establishes an impact fee (tax) on a sliding scale over 15 years for each well drilled, to be split 60/40, with 60 percent going to the county and 40 percent to the state.
Municipalities can no longer regulate gas drilling in their borders, but they can still enact zoning restrictions for things like truck traffic, noise, light and other industrial effects from drilling. If a driller believes a local zoning law is too restrictive, the driller can appeal it to the Public Utility Commission, who now becomes the referee for such disputes.
Property owners within 3,000 of a well permit must be notified of the new permit (used to be 1,000 feet).
New wells must be drilled at least 500 feet away from existing buildings or water wells (used to be 200 feet), and if itís a supply point for public water supplies, the setback must be 1,000 feet.
New wells must be drilled at least 300 feet away from streams, springs, bodies of water or wetlands greater than one acre (used to be 100 feet).
Increases the amount of blanket bonds from $25,000 up to $600,000.
Drillers must start using FracFocus.org to publicly disclose all chemicals used in the fracking of individual wells.
Creates a Natural Gas Energy Development Program with incentives to convert truck fleets to compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, or bi-fuel vehicles. At least 50 percent of the funds must be used for grants to local transportation organizations, including mass transit agencies.

Your never to old to learn something stupid
