After a devastating year, Pennsylvania is facing a significant budget shortfall for 2021. Governor Wolf’s proposal of a severance tax is not a good policy option to fill this shortfall. Many industries across the country, including the oil and natural gas industry, have struggled this year. Another tax on this industry would jeopardize Pennsylvania’s economy and the hundreds of thousands of jobs supported by natural gas production. Join Energy Citizens and urge your legislator to vote no on a severance tax.
