Franklin & Marshall Poll Gauges Pennsylvanians’ Attitude toward Restore PA Plan

Franklin & Marshall College’s Center for Opinion
Research has released
the results for their August 2019 poll. The poll grades citizens of
Pennsylvania’s attitudes on several current issues, including prospective state
policies. This poll asked citizens about their opinions on Gov. Tom Wolf’s
Restore PA policy proposal and yielded interesting results. Gov. Wolf’s Restore PA proposes $4.5 billion in
infrastructure incentives that will be paid for with a new severance tax on
natural gas extraction. The $4.5 billion would be borrowed, and paid off over a
20-year period with severance tax revenues.
