  1. Pennsylvania has a severance tax, just called an impact fee. The independent fiscal office reports the burden to be nearly 5%. PA also has a substantially higher corporate net income tax than other drilling states. Most state committee members are truly serving with the goal of supporting the best candidates for public office. The rank and file committee members must pay for the dinner, lodging etc. Not exactly the perks some might think.

  2. To Observer:
    No. This is the event where elected state committee members, each of whom funded their own campaigns from their own pockets, help to identify candidates who will best represent the needs of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
    And, by the way, the cumulative tax burden on gas producers in PA is nearly identical to that in other states. It is just not called that, and is broken up among a series of different taxes and fees.

  3. Is this the event where they hand out the million-dollar bribes, I mean, “campaign contributions” from the Frackers to the guys preventing us from having the Shae Tax that EVERY OTHER STATE has?
