Voter Information

Pennsylvania’s General Election is fast-approaching, and the result of the various races- gubernatorial, congressional, state legislative and local- will have a major impact on the economic and energy future of the Commonwealth. Severance tax, local zoning and infrastructure development are only a few key issues that will determine the viability of industry’s operations in Pennsylvania, and our elected officials directly impact the outcome of these issues and thus influence whether the state prospers over the next decade or sinks into economic decline due to policy decisions that send capital to other shale plays across the country and the world. And that impacts you, your business and your family. Therefore, now is the time to consider how you will use your voice on November 4th.
