MSC Statement on PUC Impact Fee Payments

Pittsburgh, Pa. – Marcellus Shale Coalition president Kathryn Klaber issued the following statement on Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission’s release of impact fee payments to date:

“At a time when budget shortfalls are stretching state and local governments to their limits, responsible American natural gas production is helping to support tens of thousands of good jobs and providing enormous, much-needed revenues for critical services.

“And while these figures are indeed staggering by any measure, it also serves as a stark reminder that we must ensure that we have common sense policies in place, especially local zoning uniformity at the center of Act 13, which encourage economic growth, job creation and additional revenue.”
