Leave it to Erik to show off his shill skills. This impact fee is a farce and has been from the beginning. None of this money is going to help us when we can't breath the air and we can't drink the water. Of course Erik will do his paid for song and dance, that is predictable. What is also predictable is the damage done by this industry that will never be able to be repaired with any amount of money. If we applied all the costs of this behavior to the cost of the gas there would not be one person who would choose to use it, but instead we just act like parasites and let the children deal with the outcome. Good idea folks.

It irks me that tax revenue comes from the producers. The needs of the producers (transportation, etc) should have a higher priority than the needs of the non-contributors.

You are confused.

The monies in this article are given to Lycoming county for wells in the county.

The state is still getting a nice portion of the impact fees into the general fund.....but like most governments, it is never enough.

Harrisburg needs to go through the budget and do a better job prioritizing spending. If they did, we would have enough for transportation spending.

Total misappropriation of these funds

I have seen some write in about the high initial producing rates on the wells and after a year or so decline at a rapid pace. This means that the tax revenues generated by a well will also decline at a rapid rate.

Does this mean that government officials and these types of projects will get addicted to the tax revenues from these wells and encourage additional drilling in the county?

...and liberals will say the money is not enough while they scream about the evils of "greed".
