Rep. Garth Everett to Discuss Marcellus Shale Royalties

Tune into PCN at 8 pm tonight to hear Rep. Garth Everett discuss legislation to address the practice of subtracting “post-production costs” from natural gas royalty payments.   A 1979 law that guaranteed minimum royalty payments to property owners does not sufficiently address natural gas extraction from Marcellus Shale.  Everett’s House Bill 1684, would update the law to remove any ambiguity and ensure that landowners receive the full compensation they rightly deserve.
