Why is Governor Wolf so determined to add costs to the one industry that lifted PA during tough economic times and is poised to deliver such growth?
Governor Wolf, once again, you are threatening to strangle the one industry that demonstrates the ability to grow jobs, manufacturing and general prosperity for our Commonwealth. You seem not to care at all that, prior to the shale revolution, we had not seen comparable prosperity for decades.
Unfortunately, pricing pressure and cost cuts have resulted in many layoffs and a downturn for this prosperity producing industry. Adding your promised and ill-advised energy taxes now during this period would be a very poor decision. Jobseekers and local communities who rely on these workers to keep their coffers full would suffer. Your proposed energy tax, if enacted, would ignite a chain reaction. It is one that will hurt workers, gas companies, service companies, local communities and onward. It’s a loser all the way down.
