House Re-Commits Severance Tax Bill To Committee

House Bill 33 (Vitali-D-Delaware) enacting a Marcellus Shale natural gas production severance tax was reported out of the House Finance Committee Tuesday in response to a discharge resolution filed by Rep. Greg Vitali (D-Delaware). The Committee reported the bill out with a requested the bill be re-referred to the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee.
That request was defeated today by a vote of 199-0 and the bill was returned to the House Finance Committee after that ruling was challenged and defeated by a vote of 113 to 86.
