Causer Applauds Study Highlighting Value of Conventional Oil and Gas Industry

Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today stood with area oil and gas producers at the state Capitol
HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today stood with area oil and gas producers at the state Capitol to unveil a report demonstrating the importance of the conventional oil and gas industry to the local and state economies.

“This report speaks volumes about the economic impact of this industry and the tremendous number of jobs it supports,” Causer said. “To people in our area, especially those who make their living in the oil and gas fields, these numbers come as no surprise. But as we work at the state level to help ensure the future of this 150-year-old industry, these statistics will be a valuable tool in making our case.”

Rep. Martin Causer speaks at a Capitol press conference regarding the economic impact of the state’s conventional oil and gas industry.

The report, conducted by Econsult Solutions Inc., found the industry has a $1.4 billion economic impact in the Commonwealth each year, generates $17 million in state taxes and supports 5,600 jobs.

“As we look at these impressive numbers, we have to make sure our regulatory agencies don’t screw this up,” Causer said. “We’ve seen agencies like the Department of Environmental Protection coming forward with overly burdensome regulations that hamper and hinder the industry. The jobs and economic impact cited in this report are exactly why the Legislature worked so hard to halt the Chapter 78 regulations being pushed by DEP over the last few years.”

The report focused on 19 counties in northwestern and southwestern Pennsylvania, including McKean, Potter and Cameron counties. It was commissioned by American Refining Group Inc., the Pennsylvania Grade Crude Coalition, the McKean County Industrial Development Council, McKean County Office of Economic Development, and the North Central Regional Planning and Development Commission.

Here is a good example of what money can Buy! His bottom line is if the money is in a quantity to satisfy a politician he will support the industry no matter what. I'm sure his pockets just love the pollution and dangers created by these greedy companies, as long as he can brag about his success as a great leader and the so called good produced by these companies, as they laugh and walk away after destroying everything in their wake. Causer only appears when he can pat himself on the back. I don't understand why no one runs against him at election time. Nothing he has done is for our benefit, but for his.

You do realize this report was partially funded by the oil and gas lobbyists right? Of course it will paint the industry in a flattering light.

The people in the background are directly responsible for the luxuries that you have today. I'd remember that next time you put gas in your car, or go to the grocery store and there is food on the shelves. How do you think that got there?

I'm sure, Causer isn't responsible for my gas, my grocery store, or the food. I am not a liberal either, I don't run for office, just not blinded by a politicians charm!
