Wolf calls for passage of severance tax to fund ‘Restore Pennsylvania’ plan, but not all lawmakers are on board

Gov. Tom Wolf was joined by state and local lawmakers Wednesday to advocate for his “Restore Pennsylvania” plan, a $4.5 billion proposal that would fund a series of “high-impact” projects through revenue generated from a severance tax on the extraction of natural gas. 

Wolf’s plan aspires to tackle a number of projects, including rural broadband internet access, storm preparedness, blight and lead remediation, as well as various infrastructure and transportation-related initiatives.

Wolf touts Restore Pennsylvania, severance tax in Philadelphia school visit

From a century-old school building in South Philadelphia Thursday, Governor Tom Wolf promoted his plan to repair the state’s aging infrastructure and fund emergency relief. Paying for it involves a “modest” tax on natural gas extraction.

Wolf launched the campaign ahead of his budget address last month. The Restore Pennsylvania initiative would invest $4.5 billion in initiatives from bonds, from increasing broadband internet access to funding repairs after natural disasters, paid for over time with $300 million annually in severance taxes.
