Dr. Charles P Nemeth, director of the Institute for Law and Public Policy, will be a guest on the Mike Pintak Show at 1:05 p.m. today on KDKA radio.

Nemeth will discuss his article "Marcellus Shale in the Commonwealth: Bonanza or Bust for a State Desperate for Jobs," which suggests a legislative alternative to high taxes on drilling.

His article warns that taxing could slow down the industry before it starts, and suggests that the commonwealth focuses on creating jobs and placing environmental accountability in the hands of individual drilling companies.

Drilling companies would be bonded, insured, and have an established fund for accidents and disasters, rather than seek a high level of government involvement.

Toward the end of the show, Nemeth will answer questions from callers.

Dr. Nemeth's interview is now over. A link to the archived interview on KDKA radio will be posted when available.
