Effort to Make PA Energy Independent


State Senators Doug Mastriano and Scott Hutchinson have a co-sponsor memo circulating for the PA Energy Independence Act.  

The proposed bill asks for several things including an Immediate suspension of the Corporate Net Income Tax and Personal Income Tax for natural gas producers; exempt PA from certain EPA regulations such as the Cross State Air Pollution Rule; require a report from the DEP of all rules and regulations which impact PA’s natural gas and oil industries; an immediate suspension of PA’s entrance into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

In addition to this action, State Representative Daryl Metcalfe and fourteen of his colleagues sent a letter to Governor Wolf on March 1st calling on him to “unleash PA’s full potential to power the free world” by ending “his job-killing, punitive crusade against the production and exportation of Pennsylvania natural gas and other abundant fossil fuels . . . .”  Wolf quickly responded to that letter with his assertion that such a move was impossible because of the need to save the planet from the effects of climate change!
