PA Republicans Launch “Energize PA” to Counter Wolf’s “Restore PA”

For months Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has been traveling around the Keystone State pretending he’s Santa Claus, pushing a plan he calls Restore PA–a plan that will get rid of lead paint in schools, fix flooding, repair old roads, give rural residents internet access, and just about any other goody you can think of. The catch? The PA legislature must pass a Marcellus-killing severance tax to pay for it. Republicans from western PA called his bluff, offering an alternative way to fund it (see PA Senators Steal Wolf’s Thunder, Propose Drilling to Fund Goodies). But no. The $4.5 billion Wolf wants MUST come from Marcellus drillers’ pockets. That’s the only “good” way to fund all his goodies.
