McKean County Conservation District Applauds Sen. Scarnati’s Proposed Impact Fee

The McKean County Conservation District today officially applauded Senator Joseph Scarnati’s intent to to dedicate a portion of a proposed impact fee on Marcellus Shale activity to help fund them.
Scarnati said recently at a Tioga County Conservation District legislative meeting, “We need to support conservation districts as they strive to protect and preserve our natural resources.”
The McKean County Conservation District says they help people and communities by offering technical assistance and educational guidance on the wise use of natural resources.   Districts work with private individuals and organizations as well as public agencies to implement practices intended to protect soil, water and air.
Kerry Fetter, Conservation District Chairman, said, “Senator Scarnati understands the importance of the local conservation districts in 66 Pennsylvania counties.  His support of funding for these important organizations in his impact fee proposal will help ensure our Commonwealth’s natural resources for generations to come.”
“Conservation district activities and assistance are vital to the local communities in the counties I represent and all other areas of the Commonwealth,” Scarnati concluded.  “My proposal to fund conservation districts through a portion of an enacted impact fee will serve Pennsylvania citizens well.”
