As a result of Pennsylvania’s new gas drilling law, the city of Philadelphia is set to receive nearly $1.3 million. That number was released on Monday by Governor Corbett’s office, along with the amounts every municipality and county will receive under the new law. The proceeds of the impact fee mostly go to the communities where drilling will take place, but some also goes to all counties for of conservation, beautification and other purposes.
