Without any facts about this newly developing extraction industry, let me just suggest that the history of the extraction industry in general, and coal in particular, isn't pretty. They have consistantly used their power to abuse the states that they operate in and even influence in large ways by the money contributions and PR programs, the elections.

Here in WV, Massey Energy (big coal) has in fact elected their own Supreme Court Justice, who in turn ruled in their favor against a lower court ruling that had gone against them. In the end they spent millions in the election but saved even more millions buying their own court. The CEO of Massey has recently been forced out because his company was found to be in violation of many safety laws that resulted in the disasters in mining in WV's recent history.

It is that kind of self-serving behavior in the guise of being in the general good that causes me pause. It would be wise to look at industry arguments with their past history in mind when determining the best treatment of all in regard to taxation of said industry.
