Commissioners approve tax-exempt zone for Shell

BEAVER -- A deal to entice Shell Co. to build its proposed ethane cracker plant in Potter Township took a small step forward Thursday when the Beaver County Commissioners approved the creation of a 325-acre tax-exempt zone.

Must be nice.

I wish I owned politicians.

Wait, what do you mean they're supposed to be 'MY' representatives?

...then, why don't they do this for ME?

It's a good thing we don't need taxes to pay for things. Like the police and fire and roads and everything else that supports these companies.

I mean, then we'd be in REAL trouble, what with shouldering all that tax burden onto the few people left paying them.

What is an ethane cracker plant?

Welcome to the United Corporations of America.

They rig the prices, ship the jobs over seas and our politicians reward them for it.

more corporate welfare/entitlements

for companies that are outrageously profitable
and that get a huge break on utilities cost as well

this just raises the taxes and utility bills for those who could least afford them

the shafting of the poor and what's left of the middle class continues

the politicians that approve these type of abuses should be tarred and feathered

just what we need another unprofitable ethanol plant just like the one in Clearfield supported by the taxpayers

Couldn't have said it any better 12:00am.... This is complete BS! I could see if this was a start up company but these gas companies have more money in their operating budget than our municipalities do. They can afford it, we can't anymore.

10:50 The problem with the borough i live in isn't money it's the people in charge don't any company coming here . They don,t apply for grants or even try to get new business to locate here. As soon as an idea is put before them they start the fight to keep it out! No wonder the place is in the gutter! So sad! As far as the plant in Clearfield that was a photo op for Rendell , Obama , Biden then after they got credit in the news for green jobs they quietly pulled the money!

If there's a company on the planet that doesn't need a tax exemption, it's Shell. Their profits last year and many years prior have been in the tens of billions of dollars.

This exemptions smells of political corruption. Keep an eye on the spending habits of the people who made this decision; maybe they'll be driving a new truck, or flashing a new boat around. They should all open their financial records if they seek reelection.

It's not unusual for large companies to offer "enticements" to local politicians to get favors like this. It doesn't pass the smell test.

Republicans being Republicans, what else is new.

You yell at the democrats for giving money to poor people, then look the other way when your guys pass it up to the already obscenely rich.

This whole nation is sick in the head.
