Marcellus Commission Adopts Impact Fee, Forced Pooling Recommendations

After a day-long meeting punctuated by lots of discussion, the Governor's Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission finished work on over 100 recommendations which included adoption of an impact fee and forced pooling of natural gas properties.
The final report was passed unanimously by the Commission, but some Commission members noted not all the recommendations were supported by each member.
A motion by Lt. Gov. Cawley, who Chaired the Commission,to make all the initial recommendations made to the Commission public was passed by the full Commission.
A copy of the complete set of recommendations and an additional paper on Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania will be reviewed by the Governor and released on July 22.
Details will be available in the July 18 PA Environment Digest.
