The Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) has selected an article written by Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Litigation Associate John J. Powell for inclusion in an upcoming CLE course, "Legislative Process, Statutory Drafting, Regulatory Process & Update."

Powell's article, "A Survey of State Severance Taxes on Natural Gas: Perspective for Pennsylvania," examines potential legal barriers to the imposition of a severance tax and presents a survey of the tax-structuring approaches taken by other natural gas-producing states and offers insight into the survey results.

The PBI course, held October 6, 2011 in PBI's Mechanicsburg conference center, will discuss new legislative process reform developments, uniform law, ethical issues and other recent regulatory matters.
