For years, the primary focus of Pennsylvania's fracking conversation has been upon taxes.

It's well-chronicled that Pennsylvania remains the only state not to impose a natural-gas extraction tax, and many have long - and thus far unsuccessfully - argued that a larger levy on drilling companies would work revenue-generating wonders for a state that perpetually struggles to balance its budget. Gov. Tom Wolf again pushed that case in February, when he proposed a 6.5 percent extraction tax on Marcellus shale drillers.
