I wanted to reach out to you as individuals and leaders of your organizations to invite you to an upcoming town hall meeting in Jersey Shore. We appreciate the help and support you have provided on many issues around clean water and responsible drilling in the past.
As you are probably aware, funding for the Growing Greener program is expiring. To make matters worse, the Environmental Stewardship Fund, which also funds  Growing Greener, has been diverted away from local projects.  There are many projects in north central PA and around the Commonwealth that were made possible due to this funding source. Some of you may have played a key role in these projects.
PennFuture is hosting a town hall on the severance tax and uses of the revenue on Thursday evening, September 9, in Jersey Shore.  We are calling our series of these events around the state the “Keep the Promise Tour” as we are asking members of the PA General Assembly to keep the promise they made in July to have a severance tax agreement by October 1. Below are the details on the event. We expect the following folks to attend among others: Reps. Mike Hanna, Garth Everett and Rick Mirabito; Commissioner Joel Long from Clinton County; Dave Rothrock from PA Council of TU; Tim Schaeffer from the Fish and Boat Commission; and several folks discussing value of Growing Greener funding for the area.
We would welcome attendance by your members and any promotion of the event that you can provide.  We ask that folks who attend the event register through our web site at the link below.
