PA Gov. Announces Energy Plan: Firms, Investors

Posted January 22, 2014 at 7:16am

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that “the audience for the state energy plan that Gov. Tom Corbett issued Tuesday is ‘business decision-makers,’ specifically those who don’t live in Pennsylvania but might be looking to bring companies here.”

“The Republican governor titled the 82-page document ‘Energy=Jobs‘ and imbued it with the strong message that Pennsylvania is open for business.”

“It’s not a plan in the conventional sense; it doesn’t set goals such as lowering greenhouse gas emissions or consuming more of one source and less of another, although it does encourage shifting more vehicles to run on natural gas, and there are no quantifiable metrics by which to measure energy success.”
