Governor Wolf Urges House Leaders to Hold Vote on Severance Tax

October 24, 2017

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Wolf released the following statement calling on House Republican leaders to consider severance tax legislation for a vote:

“It is well past time for House Republican leaders to allow for a vote on a commonsense severance tax that will make oil and gas companies finally pay their fair share. A majority of Pennsylvanians support a severance tax, along with many Republicans and Democrats in the House and the Senate, and Pennsylvania should no longer be the only gas-producing state in the country without one. I am calling on the House to hold a vote on a severance tax this week.”
