More details emerge about Corbett’s Monday Marcellus Shale rollout

    StateIm­pact has learned more details about Gov­er­nor Corbett’s Mon­day roll­out of his Mar­cel­lus Shale agenda.

    On Mon­day morn­ing, admin­is­tra­tion offi­cials will brief law­mak­ers, envi­ron­men­tal advo­cates, and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the energy indus­try on the proposal’s details. After that, Cor­bett will pub­licly announce the plan dur­ing a Pitts­burgh event an admin­is­tra­tion advi­sory bills as a forum for the Repub­li­can to “dis­cuss jobs related [to] the Mar­cel­lus Shale Industry.”

    A mem­ber of the admin­is­tra­tion briefed StateIm­pact on the plan and its roll­out. Leg­isla­tive staffers con­firmed the details.

    Cor­bett staffers have been work­ing on the pro­posal since late July, when the governor’s Mar­cel­lus Shale Advi­sory Com­mis­sion issued a report includ­ing 96 rec­om­men­da­tions for changes to Penn­syl­va­nia laws, reg­u­la­tions and eco­nomic policy.
