Babst Calland: Pa. Farm Bureau Supports Passage of Royalty Legislation

By Elena L. Rorabaugh

NPR’s StateImpact Pennsylvania reports that the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau is getting involved in the debate over minimum royalties. As we have previously posted, House Bill 1684 is currently in the state House. If passed, the bill would guarantee landowners a minimum royalty of 12.5%, which could not be reduced further by post-production costs. The Farm Bureau is putting its support behind the bill, as indicated by remarks from the Farm Bureau’s President, Carl Shaffer.
