Where Are We on the Wolf Severance Tax Proposal?

….

What are the prospects for Tom Wolf’s proposed severance tax after losing the first round with the Pennsylvania legislature? Charlie Schliebs evaluates.

When we published our last issue of our company newsletter in July of last year, we were simply waiting for the 2015-16 Pennsylvania budget to be approved by Governor Wolf before publishing the next issue, in which we planned to explain how the key budget compromises were made and what they meant for the shale gas industry, not only in Pennsylvania but also in adjoining states.

Well, we waited, and we waited, and we waited, and things were really never solved. Instead, the Governor lost on all accounts (shale gas severance tax and otherwise) and all the cans were kicked down the road for another try with the 2016-17 budget due at the end of this month, June 30, 2016. What happens next with the 2016-17 budget? Well, let me offer some observations.

Indoctrination Central: New York State Is Raising Fractivists

….
….  

Vic Furman takes a look at New York State regents exams and finds them to be tailored for use at Indoctrination Central, where they raise up new fractivists. 

A few weeks ago I spent some spare time digging around the New York State Library research site where I found copies of regents examinations used by our state educators to test our children on what they’ve learned in our schools. What I found was nothing less than deeply upsetting; our school system might as well be called Indoctrination Central. It is being used to inculcate fractivism and other political versions of environmentalism in young minds. I had no idea there was this much indoctrination taking place in our schools. No wonder fractivists have so much influence over New York politics.

Cabot Oil & Gas is dedicated to investing in career and technical education. This year alone Cabot has generously helped with funding for almost 500 students.

During February, we recognize Career and Technical Education Month. Investing in education, especially CTE, remains a primary focus of Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation’s outreach in Pennsylvania. Over the course of the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years, Cabot will invest approximately $220,000 in CTE education. Allocation of these funds to seven different CTE centers across eight different counties (72 different zip codes) in Pennsylvania -Susquehanna, Wyoming, Wayne, Luzerne, Columbia, Montour, Schuylkill, and North Hampton – will impact close to 500 students during the 2015-16 year.

Cabot & Junior Achievement: Teaching Financial Literacy

External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas

 

Cabot & Junior Achievement have partnered to teach school age students important life skills, such as financial literacy and career readiness.

Last year Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation pledged to support 1,000 new students through Junior Achievement of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s financial literacy and career readiness programming. JA of NEPA has been a vital partner of Cabot’s over the last few years, helping facilitate energy-based curriculum, Opportunities in Energy, in multiple regional high schools.

From the experience of working together on energy curriculum, it became apparent that concepts of financial literacy (budgets, payment options, making choices, etc.) & career readiness (resume building, interview preparation, etc.) went hand-in-hand with the Opportunities in Energy curriculum. While the intention was to start this programming at the beginning of the academic year, the budget stalemate in Harrisburg postponed everything until January.
