PA Must Modernize Tax, Regulatory Structure to Lower Costs, Increase Growth

Click here to view video.

Lowering costs for consumers and growing the state’s economy will require significant changes to tax and regulatory policies in the Commonwealth, members of the House Majority Policy Committee were told on Tuesday.

In the final of four hearings focused on inflation, the committee heard from tax experts and employer advocates about long-term solutions to rising costs and how best to drive investment and create growth in the Commonwealth.

Specific suggestions repeated during the hearing included lowering the 9.99% Corporate Net Income Tax, which is the second highest in the nation; increasing the amount of operating losses that may be credited toward tax liabilities; reforming taxes impacting small businesses; and addressing regulatory roadblocks, including tort reform, occupational licensing restrictions, civil liability reforms, partisan judicial elections and the state liquor monopoly.

Testifiers also advocated for increasing domestic energy production, as well as expanding the labor force by improving education and workforce development training, and eliminating policies that have discouraged many people from returning to work.

Testimony and video of all four hearings is available online at
Natural Gas Impact Fee Distributions Benefit Communities, Environment

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission announced $234.4 million in natural gas impact fees are being distributed this year, up 60% over last year due to higher prices and greater levels of activity.

Under Act 13 of 2012, county and municipal governments directly affected by drilling will receive a total of $123.2 million for the 2021 reporting year. This funding is used for a wide range of local infrastructure, emergency response, community and environmental programs.

Additionally, $86 million will be transferred to the Marcellus Legacy Fund, which provides financial support for environmental, highway, water and sewer, rehabilitation of greenways and other projects throughout the state. Also, $25.1 million will be distributed to state agencies including the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, Department of Environmental Protection, Fish and Boat Commission, County Conservation Districts and the Office of the State Fire Commissioner.

Locally, the distribution of impact fees is as follows:
  •   Cameron County and its municipalities – $1.1 million.
  •   McKean County and its municipalities – $1.19 million.
  •   Potter County and its municipalities – $905,000.

This year’s distributions bring the total revenues generated by the impact fee to $2.26 billion.
Bill to Boost Plugging of Orphan Wells Passes House

Click here to view video.

The state House this week approved my legislation that would help increase the number of orphan wells being plugged in the Commonwealth. Estimates indicate there are more than 200,000 such wells across the state.

House Bill 2644 would create a program to provide grants to companies that work to plug some of the Commonwealth’s orphan wells. DEP would direct 20% of the funds it receives from the federal government toward the grant program, while the remaining funding would be used for its existing well-plugging program.

Grants of $10,000 would be awarded for plugging wells of 3,000 feet or less in depth, and grants of $20,000 would be awarded for plugging wells more than 3,000 feet deep.

The bill also would address well bonding amounts by fixing the current bonding amounts for conventional wells that are in law and making it clear the Environmental Quality Board cannot adjust these amounts by regulation.

The House also approved House Bill 2528, which would boost the use of Pennsylvania-based businesses in the process of plugging wells.

The measures now go to the Senate for consideration.
House Unanimously Advances Bill to Boost Firefighter Ranks
With the number of firefighters shrinking across the Commonwealth, the House has approved legislation that would prepare junior firefighters for becoming full firefighters a year earlier than is allowed under current law.

House Bill 2268 would permit a 17-year-old junior firefighter to complete the Interior Firefighting Module with Live Burns training program in the Fire Training System. Currently, only people age 18 and over are allowed to enroll in the training program.

In order to take the additional training at 17, junior firefighters would need to have the permission of their parents and fire chief. This would mean when a junior firefighter turns 18 years old, he or she would immediately be able to serve their communities as a full-fledged firefighter.

The legislation now goes to the Senate for consideration.
Bill to Help Recruit Career and Technical Instructors Earns House Approval

In response to the growing need for career and technical education instructors, the House has approved legislation to ease certification for instructors already certified in another state. 

House Bill 2646 would allow teachers holding a current career and technical instructional certificate issued by another state, along with four years wage-earning experience in the occupation to be taught and two years of teaching experience, to be issued an equivalent Pennsylvania career and technical instructional certificate.

It is more important than ever to ensure Pennsylvania schools can provide the kind of career and technical instruction needed to prepare students for highly specialized skilled trades jobs that offer family-sustaining wages and benefits. Employers across the state report difficulties in filling such positions.

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.

PA House Republican Leaders Comment on Dobbs Decision

HARRISBURG – Speaker of the House Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) and House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) issued the following statement on the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling reestablishes the authority of states to regulate abortion. The ruling once again makes clear it is the authority of individual states to establish laws that are in the best interest of their residents.

“It is important to point out Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act remains in effect, and places firm restrictions on abortions in our Commonwealth including a ban on all late-term abortion procedures.

“This ruling presents a necessary opportunity to examine our existing abortion law, and discussions around possible changes are already underway.”

West Penn Power Updates Progress on Restoration After Wednesday Storms

 West Penn Power

UPDATE: Crews are in the home stretch of power restoration! They have restored power to more than 35,000 customers who were impacted by Wednesday evening's severe storms. 

Crews continue to work around the clock to restore service to about 1,200 customers who remain without power. 

With the help of additional contractors and crews from our sister utilities assisting with restoration efforts in the hardest-hit areas, we expect to have customers who remain without power back up and running throughout the day.  

Crews are addressing many localized issues and restoring power to individual customers. This is the most time-consuming, labor-intensive and complex part of service restoration, requiring crews to travel to each individual location. 

To obtain the most up-to-date information about the outage in your area, please continue to use our outage map: Or text STAT to 544487 for updates on your specific outage. 

We truly appreciate your ongoing patience and support for our crews as they work in 16-hour shifts until all customers are restored.

Northern Pennsylvania Regional College Suspends Institutional Fees

 Exciting News!  


NPRC’s Board of Trustees recognizes the challenging economic times our students continue to endure. To help students meet these challenges, the board voted to approve a two-year suspension of institutional fees charged for academic courses. 

What are the fees currently?  

An institutional fee is charged in addition to tuition and is based on the number of credits in which students enroll each academic term. Degree-seeking students and students assigned student types other than early entry (dual enrollment) are charged a flat-rate fee of $100 for six or more credits. For five or fewer credits, the fee is $18 per credit hour. This fee does not apply to early entry students or for courses in which a grade of audit is requested.  
What does this mean?  

Beginning fall 2022, students will not be charged institutional fees for academic courses on their student bill.  

How else does NPRC provide savings?

While the two-year suspension of institutional fees is the latest way NPRC is helping students save on their education, it is not the only way. Over 50 percent of textbooks used in our courses are free of cost to students. Lab and distance learning kits have also been supplied by the College for various classes to help students combat associated education costs.

Are changes coming to NPRC class options?

The answer to this question is yes, but only to benefit students. This fall, we will be offering morning courses for the first time in our history at select locations to help students who may work a job in the evenings or have children at school during the day. This change provides more flexibility and will allow more students the chance to take classes at times that fit into the day-to-day commitments they have as caregivers or professionals.

Think About It

The Valley
B.J. Knefley

Have you ever found yourself in a valley? Valley meaning down, in the pits, that place that just seems disconnected from everything else. Most can probably relate in one way or another. I found myself in that place the other day and I wondered how I was going to get out of it.

There is a story in the Book of Ezekiel called the Valley of Dry Bones. It’s a story that most are familiar with and there has even been a song written about it. It’s found in Ezekiel 37. The story relates to bones scattered across the valley floor. They have no life and God asks Ezekiel if the bones could live. Ezekiel says to God, “You alone know the answer to that.”

Often when we find ourselves in the valley, we look to God to pull us up. In those moments when we are feeling life being drained, we’re looking for something outside of ourselves to bring life back. But is that the answer? In Ezekiel’s story it wasn’t God who spoke life into the dry bones but rather Ezekiel.

God told Ezekiel to speak the Word of the Lord over the bones. As he did, the bones started to come alive. With each word, life started to take form in bones that were once dead. It is also true with us. When we start to speak life over our situation, we will often find that we start to climb out of our pits.

Did you know that Jesus said that you would know the truth and that the truth would set you free? He also said that his word is truth. Often, we rehearse in our minds words that only bring us down and destroy who we are from the inside. We have power in the spoken word if we’d only use it. Sadly, we often play mental gymnastics in your mind and then wonder why things don’t change. We need to learn to speak truth over our lives. It is in this that our minds are renewed. The next time you find yourself in the valley, start speaking life to your situation, it may just change your whole outlook. Think about it.

The scholarship is available to area students from Allegany, Cattaraugus, McKean (PA) and Potter (PA) counties, but first preference is for students from the greater Olean area schools. Preference is also given to students whose family members are or have been employed by Dresser-Rand.

Brink, of Allegany-Limestone Central School, plans to study electrical engineering at the University at Buffalo. Ruter, a graduate of Coudersport Area School District, will study health science on an accelerated physician assistant track at Saint Francis University.

Scanlon, of Portville Central School, plans to study rail transportation engineering at Penn State Altoona. Thomas, an Olean High School graduate, will attend Saint Leo University, where she will study biology (biomedical and health sciences) and business.
