New Honda plant
The new version of Honda’s Acura NSX sports car will be produced inside a former Honda facility in Marysville in central Ohio.
Officials say the new plant at the former North American Logistics facility will employ about 100 skilled workers drawn from existing Ohio operations.
The $70 million Performance Manufacturing Center adjacent to Honda of America Mfg.’s auto plant in Marysville will cover about 184,000 square feet.
Shale impact fee
Gov. Tom Corbett’s energy executive is questioning research that says Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale impact fee will generate billions of dollars less in long-term revenue than the same natural-gas production in West Virginia.
The Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center made the long-term comparison to what a 5 percent tax such as West Virginia’s will generate, but Energy Executive Patrick Henderson says the group has a liberal bias.
Henderson says the Pennsylvania fee encourages investment and that “a job for a Pennsylvanian beats enacting a new tax.”
