Tom Corbett on Energy & Oil

 


Help three refineries survive by owners & unions cooperating

Working in a true bipartisan effort that is all too rare today, I joined with elected leaders, with business leaders and with union leaders to find new owners and a new future for those refineries.

We were able to show new investors the skill, work ethic and limitless potential of the Pennsylvania worker. And we were able to share with those new investors the vision of Pennsylvania's energy future as a world leader. Today, those refineries still employ thousands and support thousands of more jobs, from the truckers who drive in and out with deliveries, to the lunch counters and small shops that will continue to thrive in the shadow of those plants.

You see underneath the Marcellus Shale is another bonanza. It's called the Utica Shale. And where
