Cawley: "No Severance Tax", NY Times Article Simply Not True

Lieutenant governor: ‘No’ still means ‘no’


By DAVID THOMPSON - dthompson@sungazette.com

"No."

That is Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley's response to a question as to whether there is even a remote chance Gov. Tom Corbett will approve a severance tax on the natural gas industry. More....

Regarding a recent New York Times article that was critical of the way the state handles issues with the natural gas industry, particularly the way it handles, treats and discharges industry wastewater, Cawley invoked Rendell's top environmental watchdog, former Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Hanger.

"When you've got Ed Rendell's secretary of the DEP saying the New York Times is making it up, you ought to sit up and take notice," Cawley said. "He's saying what's being reported simply is not true."

Cawley said Corbett has no immediate plans to begin leasing more state land for gas exploration. More...

Let's all tell him we will not pay the PA Income Tax. And when April rolls around and no one has, we'll tell him we can't break a promise and lie.

Corbett = Hitler said...

Just Impeach his ass. People voted to put him in office. Get together and vote his arrogant ass out of office.
