That's funny because George Soros owns major stock in Pioneer Natural Resources a oil and gas company.

Hi nobud, what I was trying to say was after 5 years of gas drilling (and profits for the companies) Pa. still has a collapsing infrastructure and no money to pay for it unless it comes from the taxpayer.

What happened to the relief the taxpayers were promised by all these politicians while they were stuffing gas money in their pockets? It always falls back on the residents to pick up their tab.

Born, I'm not sure all Act 13 monies were to be used for any one set of priorities. That said, have you ever seen any pol hold true to what they say taxes will be used for? Remember the windfall of billions the states received from the tobacco companies? Oh, everyone was all for it, punish those darn corporations,…that money was used in the general funds and for pet projects and to get pols reelected. Nothing new here. But! There is something new, an attempt to cut the cost of projects by allowing contractors to hire staff at wages that are similar to those of the area. Maybe this way we can get more done with our limited resources.
