I agree with"rick424"lots of gas activity all over Lycoming County where is this act 13 money? Anadarko paid the State $249.3 million where did that go? That's just one gasholder, how much did all the others pay? Where did it go? Oh the County didn't get much of that to amount to anything? BS why not?

All you saw was$$$ when they came a ****in' and now you're mad you didn't get a big enough cut. To late now.
