    The content of these bills, as of June 7, 2018, does indeed contain changes to the Guaranteed Minimum Royalty Act. Go to for up to date information on the proposals. Type SB1000 in the search box to find the most recent printer's version of the bill. As of June 7, Senate Bill 1000 was referred to the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee for consideration.

    Though it is unlikely that this particular pass will pass this year now that Governor Wolf has thrown in the towel on this one, keep watch on the Severance Tax issue. It is likely to resurface!
