Gabler Votes to Support Gas Impact Fee, Environmental Protection and Job Growth

HARRISBURG – Thursday’s vote on House Bill 1950, which would give counties the option of imposing a natural gas well impact fee and modernizes Pennsylvania’s laws by improving the standards that unconventional gas drillers must meet, passed the House today with support from state Rep. Matt Gabler (R-Clearfield/Elk). The bill will now be taken up by the state Senate.

Gabler issued this statement following the vote:

“House Bill 1950 creates a reasonable impact fee that compensates local communities and pays for government services related to gas development.  It does not grow government by sending  funds from our local industry back to Harrisburg to be spent in places such as Philadelphia that do not have gas development.


“This bill increases environmental standards on unconventional gas wells across the state to modernize Pennsylvania’s current outdated Oil and Gas Act. It allows local municipalities to retain control while setting reasonable standards that protect jobs.
“The bill that we passed strikes a reasonable compromise that ensures drilling companies pay their fair share, while protecting the rights of local landowners and keeping Pennsylvania's jobs climate competitive.”
