Letter to the Editor: Local Woman Wants Governor to Realize ‘We Can’t Afford New Proposed Tax Increase’
We are currently reaping the benefits of some of the lowest gasoline and natural gas prices right now because of the Oil and Gas industry in Pa.
They have slowed production because of this abundance and still pay some of the highest business tax in the country. I was taught to never bite the hand that feeds us and adding a severance tax will do just that: they will leave and take their business elsewhere. Remember that next time you fill up your gas tank.
As we enter the holiday season without a budget and services needed by so many communities, it’s time the Governor listens to what his constituents really want. We just can’t afford all the new proposed tax increase.
