Pennsylvania's competitive impact tax has generated $1.7 billion since it was enacted and benefits every county in the state - regardless of whether there is drilling activity in that region or not. Many of the projects highlighted in the Wolf administration's "RestorePA Initiative" are already being paid for by the impact tax.
Impact tax funds are helping to pay for critical local projects - such as conserving farmland, building new parks and cleaning up industrial sites - and also go towards important environmental programs. The industry is on track to bring in record high impact tax revenues from 2018 collections.
In order to keep Pennsylvania competitive and energy costs low, elected officials must keep the current impact structure in place!
