Shale Drilling and Taxes: What’s Fair?

Gov. Kasich wants to raise Ohio’s severance tax on the extraction of natural resources like shale oil and gas. The government wants to raise Ohio's existing tax, but still keep it lower than neighboring shale states.

What’s the proper balance between a tax structure that benefits Ohio but fairly taxes the shale oil businesses?

Join us to hear from a panel of experts on both sides of an issue critically important to the economic future of Ohio towns and counties across the Utica Shale.

Rep. Brian Ellis, Pennsylvania House of Representatives

PRO Tax: Michael Hartley, Vice President, Government Relations, Columbus Chamber
CON Tax: Jerry James, president of Artex Oil Co., president of Ohio Oil and Gas Assn.
