Legislative Watch: Pennsylvania Senate Approves Proposed Shale Gas Legislation

This post was written by Jennifer Smokelin

On Tuesday, February 7, the Pennsylvania Senate voted 31-19 to approve HB 1950, a Marcellus Shale regulatory and impact fee bill. As we previously discussed, the bill would fund road work and environmental clean-ups and give local governments the power to decide if the fee would be imposed on their local wells. The Senate vote approved a conference committee report issued late Monday. Next, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives must pass the bill before it could go to the desk of Governor Tom Corbett for his signature.
