PMA Statement in response Governor Wolf's "Restore Pennsylvania" Proposal

Governor Wolf announced plans today (Tuesday, January 28, 2020) to renew the push for his “Restore Pennsylvania” proposal. The plan borrows, bonds, and spends $4.5 billion in infrastructure projects throughout the commonwealth, and then implements a new, additional tax on energy production to attempt to fund the payments. The following quotes can be attributed to David N. Taylor, President & CEO of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association.

PMA’s Taylor returns from natural gas advisory visit to Australia

Taylor joined Pennsylvania state officials on a visit to the NT to offer help and advice.

“The Beetaloo Basin play is believed to be as large as the Marcellus, and of similar composition” Taylor said. “But there are numerous obstacles to overcome to get the gas and gas by-products to the domestic market where they are needed most.”

Harrisburg budget choices: more taxes or more jobs

Governor Tom Wolf has been travelling the state peddling this year’s version of his tiresome tax hike plan.
