In light of Gov. Tom Wolf announcing Wednesday his plan for a natural gas extraction tax to fund statewide education, some local political leaders are again not completely opposed to the idea. Many say they are for the severance tax Wolf campaigned around with some minor changes, while others are searching for more details in the proposal.
On Wednesday, Wolf made an appearance at Caln Elementary School in Chester County. The school is a part of Coatesville Area School District — a district that has taken a $3.5 million reduction in state aid since the 2010-11 school year.
