Five #ShaleTaxFacts on Tax Day

As many Americans rush to file last minute tax returns today, it serves as an important reminder that proposals for higher energy taxes threaten countless good-paying jobs, small businesses and potentially schools, our region’s manufacturing rebirth, as well as shale’s broad economic benefits. Here are five – of the many – #ShaleTaxFacts to consider. $830 […]

MSC in the Sunbury Daily Item: “Opportunity for All”

With Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale accounting for 36% of the United States’ natural gas production, America’s position of […]
