PA DEP Hiring 37 To Process, Regulate Gas Drilling

N.Y. may follow Pa., increase fees for gas drilling

State would use added income to hire staff for DEC

By Tom Wilber • twilber@gannett.com
Star Gazette
Regulators in Pennsylvania will charge more for gas well permits in 2009 to help offset rising costs of overseeing the industry.

With drill operators eyeing the gas-rich Marcellus Shale under the Southern Tier, officials in New York are considering doing the same. More...

Nice...just what we need! The gas companies get to drill and make money, the government charges higher fees and taxes and they make more money, the taxpayers absorb the higher cost of gas due to the fees and now we have to spend more of our tax money to hire people to monitor the gas companies. They must think the taxpayer pockets are really deep.

Yep...larger government, just what we need...now that is the answer! Wonder if these new employees will have full blown benefits to boot? Silly me, that is a given.

Jealous of the land owners that want to drill, jealous of the gas companies, jealous of the people being hired.......want a piece of something you can't have?

I'm not "jealous" of any of those things....i'm just tired of the state coming up with all of these different ideas that involve the use of my tax money. If we keep making the government larger it will soon outgrow the people that it is supposed to serve.

That's it!!! If the Government is where all the money is at, then I am going to leave here and join them!!! How hard could it be? I am sure it's a lot easier than the drilling.

You might want to worry more about taking care of the welfare and how they out-number the working man. Do that math!

Welfare makes more than the Government?

The other one can't figure out is the fact that the unemployment accounts are now running out of money. If over 90% of the possible employed workers are paying into it for who knows how many years, how can it run out from having to pay the 8 to 10 % of the unemployed for 6 months? Something is definitely being mismanaged there!! I've been paying into unemployment and social security for ovwer 20 years. i got my S.S. statement a month ago and did a rough estimate and figured out that i would have to live to be 138 years old to get all of my money back.

Yes,I have done the math as well.

As an employer paying in 4 times a year via UC-2(employers unemployment compensation fund) based on the total gross of our payroll this should NEVER happen. Have been paying into this employers tax deal for over 25years.

Your employees will never ever draw out or use the benefits of the amount of money you pay into the Commonwealth of PA.

And to the employees that think "they" pay it in, not so. That .0006% that comes out of your weekly paycheck would not even cover 1 unemployment check.

Then we have the Fed 940, this is paid several times a year based on how large your total gross is. The Fed's like you to pay them each time this payroll tax amount due reaches around 500.00.

And by the time your employer matches the amount of S.S. and Medicare with the UC-2, and Fed 940most employers with about 20 employees (if they pay above min. wage) will be paying in about 100,000.00 in payroll taxes alone!And this amount is the employers share of the payroll taxes not what is withheld and paid in for the employee.

Sounds like a huge, convoluted mess to me...just like the federal tax codes.
