House Committee to Vote Minimum Royalty Legislation
WHAT: The House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, chaired by state Rep. Ron Miller (R-York), will vote House Bill 1684, authored by Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming). The bill would prevent post-production costs associated with unconventional gas, oil or natural gas wells from being transferred to royalty owners, thus reducing payments to them below the one-eighth minimum mandated by Act 60 of 1979.

The bill has bipartisan support in the form of 26 sponsors, including state Reps. Matt Baker (R-Bradford/Tioga), Sandra Major (R-Susquehanna/Wayne/Wyoming) and Tina Pickett
(R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna). It was tabled Tuesday, March 11, to take into consideration suggested amendments.

WHEN: Monday, March 17, 11 a.m.

WHERE: Room 205, Ryan Office Building, State Capitol, Harrisburg.
