HARRISBURG – Continuing to encourage manufacturing facilities to invest in the Commonwealth, Rep. Aaron Kaufer (R-Luzerne) announced that his Energy and Fertilizer Manufacturing Tax Credit legislation, House Bill 1100, was passed by the House with a vote of 139-46.

Kaufer’s House Bill 1100 reflects the existing Pennsylvania Resource Manufacturing tax credit that led to the Shell Cracker Plant investment in western Pennsylvania and will focus on large manufacturers using Pennsylvania methane in the production of ammonia, urea and methanol. It also will encourage other manufacturers to invest in Pennsylvania.

“I want to thank my colleagues for supporting this beneficial legislation,” said Kaufer. “House Bill 1100 provides a great incentive for out-of-state manufacturers to open up shop here in Pennsylvania. With these high-value investments comes thousands of construction jobs as well as a thousand permanent, family-sustaining jobs. These investments would also give a much-needed boost to our local and regional economy.”

House Bill 1100 is part of the House-led Energize PA bill package. The Energize PA initiative is focused on redeveloping Pennsylvania’s infrastructure while also promoting employment and economic growth.
