Governor Wolf's Budget Invests in Energy Development for Pennsylvania

Governor Tom Wolf's 2015-16 Budget will make Pennsylvania an energy leader through new investments to take full and responsible advantage of our rich natural resources, including natural gas, coal, wind, solar, and timber. In addition, the plan also invests millions more to protect, clean and conserve the commonwealth's land, air and water.

“To take the reins as the nation’s energy leader, we must expand and develop new markets for Pennsylvania’s energy technologies, services and fuels, and this budget makes historic investments to bolster and transform our energy economy,” Acting Secretary of Environmental Protection John Quigley said, “Governor Wolf’s budget attests to his commitment to create new jobs and protect public health and our environment, all of which strengthens Pennsylvania’s economy.”

Acting Secretary of Conservation and Natural Resources Cindy Dunn added, “Governor Wolf’s budget prioritizes investing in our parks, forests and open spaces. Our award-winning state park system generates more than a billion dollars annually for local economies and supports 13,000 jobs that pay.”
