Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has reported that the Marcellus Shale Impact Fee for natural gas drilling, part of Act 13 signed into law in February 2012, has brought in more than $400 million.

The second round of collections for 2012 was due to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission by April 1. Nearly $198 million is expected to go to the state from this round.

That's in addition to the $204 million brought in during the first round of collections. The 2012 amounts were released this week.

Information on the amount of money expected for 2012, as well as the amount of money collected to date, can be found on the Act 13 page on the PUC's website, www.puc.pa.gov.
