Pennsylvania’s House is debating its Marcellus Shale impact fee this afternoon, with the goal of a final vote by day’s end.
It’s a lively debate: lawmakers have already quoted Ke$ha and referenced the JFK assassination. But most of the major points being made are the same issues lawmakers have been talking about since the first severance tax debates in 2009.
Over the coming days, StateImpact will have full coverage of the implications of the bill’s re-written language, and analysis of what happens next. For the details on today’s debate and vote, however, follow these reporters on Twitter:
