Gov. Tom Wolf stopped in Williamsport Friday to hear a briefing from Lycoming County on the hefty price tag attached to the recertification of the levee protecting Williamsport and the surrounding municipalities – a roughly $12 million project.

Wolf is proposing that a severance tax on the gas industry could be used to fund projects like the levee.

This is Wolf’s second attempt to introduce a severance tax, which he is proposing as a source of funding for his $4.5 billion infrastructure plan in the state.

On the PULSE was at the briefing and provides a short overview here. If you would like a full video of the briefing, make a comment or send us a message and we can publish that.
