Pennsylvania Governor visits Shenango Valley business

Posted: Updated:
HERMITAGE, Pa. -

Governor Tom Corbett met with Shenango valley business owners at the Joy Cone company in Hermitage on Thursday.

After a small tour, he talked about the need to keep taxes low to continue to bring new businesses and jobs to the Keystone state.

He said his policies have already brought new manufacturing companies to Pennsylvania.

"We want them to grow the jobs in Pennsylvania. We like to see the private sector grow, we do it through the enforcement of regulations. Also, we do it through tax policies. Keeping our taxes low attracts people to Pennsylvania. We see businesses coming from other states where taxes are higher coming to PA," said Governor Corbett.

The governor talked about the growing gas and oil industry and it's importance in creating new jobs and feeding the state's economy. "That's a whole new company and line of product that they're developing. You see that in many other areas that they are attracting vendors, that we didn't even have in existence before," said Corbett.

21 News asked the governor about a ruling made by a federal judge on Tuesday that struck down the state's gay marriage ban. His only comment was he has no plans to appeal the ruling.

"The likelihood of prevailing in the 3rd circuit was not there. It was very very remote, we just decided we were not going to continue to go forward with it," said Corbett.
