Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: July 19, 2022 10:16 PM
From: Senator Gene Yaw
To: All Senate members
Subject: Prohibiting counties that ban natural gas development from receiving county share of Impact Fee / MLF drilling funds
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation which would prohibit counties that ban natural gas development under county-owned land from receiving their county share of Impact Fee drilling funds or being eligible applicants for Marcellus Legacy Fund grants administered by the Commonwealth Financing Authority.
Municipalities within a county that bans natural gas development under county-owned land will still receive their municipal distributions of the Impact Fee.
It is only fitting that those counties which choose to support the safe and responsible development of our domestic energy resources benefit from those Impact Fee and Legacy funds.  I hope you will join me in supporting this measure. 

Introduced as SB1331
