HARRISBURG (WSKG) -- House lawmakers have begun moving a natural severance tax through their chamber.
It's major priority for Democrats, who have been trying unsuccessfully to pass one for a decade.
But it's slow going--the bill is saddled with well over 300 amendments.
Along with Democrats, the tax is championed by a coalition of moderate, largely southeastern Republicans.
GOP Representative Kate Harper, of Montgomery County, is one of the most vocal advocates.
