Webinar: Act 13 – Understanding the Marcellus Shale Drilling Law
June 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
The 2012, the PA General Assembly amended the Oil and Gas Act with the adoption of Act 13. This act created impact fees on Marcellus Shale drilling sites while determining how those fees will be distributed to municipalities across the Commonwealth and how municipalities may spend this newfound revenue source.
This webinar, presented by Local Government Academy and Corey Young, MCRP, the Director of the Washington and Jefferson College Center for Energy Policy and Management, will review the origin, status and trends of impact fee distribution including how municipalities may legally spend revenue from these fees. It will include an overview of state oversight for the program and municipal reporting requirements for impact fee expenditures, and will conclude by highlighting interesting and relevant local projects financed through Act 13 impact fees.
