PA House Appropriations Chair Bill Adolph (R-165th) Co-Sponsors HB 1700

June 30, 2011

Dear Ms. Rosenbaum:

Thank you for your email urging my opposition to Senate Bill 1100.  I appreciate hearing from you on this issue.  As you may know, Senate Bill 1100 is currently in the Senate for consideration.  Please know that I will keep your concerns in mind if and when this bill reaches the House for consideration.

This legislation would establish a graduated impact fee that starts at $50,000 per well in the first two years of production and trails off to $10,000 per year after 21 years and remains in place for the life of the well.  This fee structure would generate approximately $1.1 Billion over the next five years.

Delaware Riverkeepers Oppose SB 1100 – The Scarnati Bill

June 16, 2011

The Delaware Riverkeepers oppose Senate Bill 1100 – the Scarnati Impact Fees Bill. They are organizing a petition against it. “We need Pennsylvania residents to speak out and urge their elected officials to vote NO on Senate Bill 1100  introduced by Senate President Joe Scarnati should it come to the House or Senate floor. We oppose SB1100 because it would trade the rights of citizens and local governments for drilling fees and taxes.  A democratic society supports local decision-making. Pennsylvania’s citizens must be able to have input into the laws and practices that affect them and municipal officials must be able to represent their constituents.” SOURCE:
