PA Chamber of Business & Industry Press Conference and Rally
in Harrisburg, PA
KEF attended the PA Chamber of Business & Industry Press Conference and Rally at the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg on June 23, 2015. The press conference brought together a diverse coalition of more than 20 organizations to communicate to members of the General Assembly and the Wolf Administration that higher energy taxes will hinder economic growth and put good paying jobs at risk. Speakers included Gene Barr, President & CEO of the PA Chamber; Dawood Engineering, Inc. President Bony R. Dawood; Allegheny Medical Integrated Health Services Director of Corporate Health, Melissa Hodge; Dave Horn, LECET business development, LiUNA - Eastern PA District Council; and Capt. Tony Caldarelli, U.S. Army, retired. According to the Chamber, as of 2014 more than 243,000 Pennsylvanians have been employed as a result of the natural gas industry. The average core industry salary stands at $93,000 per year. Additionally, the natural gas industry has helped to generate more than $2 billion in tax revenues for the state. This is on top of the more than $850 million that has been collected under the current impact tax, which, according to the Independent Fiscal Office, is equivalent to a 4.7 percent severance tax and is benefitting local communities across all 67 Pennsylvania counties.
