New Poll: 70% Of Voters Support Marcellus Shale Tax, 65% Oppose State Forest Drilling

Yet another poll this week by Susquehanna Polling found 70 percent of those polled support a Marcellus Shale natural gas extraction tax, including 62 percent of registered Republicans.
Just last week a poll by Franklin & Marshall College found 62 percent of those surveyed supported the tax.
The new poll found 65 percent of voters were against opening any more State Forest land to Marcellus Shale drilling.
Just 17 percent supported continued budget cuts to the Department of Environmental Protection, which now has General Fund support below 1994 levels, almost all of which occurred during the Rendell Administration.
