Energy is a tremendous West Virginia natural resource, and the non-partisan efforts by the West Virginia Legislature and Governor to attract developers of our Marcellus gas deposits are praiseworthy indeed.
Hopefully, these efforts will result in protection for our environment, more good paying jobs for our citizens, and additional revenue for our State Budget (that can and should be used to reduce our other taxes).
All of which reminds me of that old maxim: "What's good for the goose is good for the gander.".
Wouldn't all of us Mountaineers be so much better served if the tax breaks and other incentives given to the Marcellus gas developers also were given to all West Virginia employers?
