Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai has been a true champion for the Marcellus industry in the Keystone State. He’s also a great conservative, a counterweight to leftist Governor Tom Wolf. Mike Turzai is the reason Wolf’s odious (and really dumb) severance tax has not passed. Turzai has been our firewall. MDN editor Jim Willis spoke to Speaker Turzai this past June at an event in northeastern PA where he told us he would run for governor in 2022 (see Spreading Marcellus Love Throughout PA with Expanded PIPE Program). Is that all out the window? Yes.
