In April 2014, GiGirolamo supported a severance tax on Pennsylvania's natural gas industry on top of an impact fee. His legislation supported a severance tax that would send 40 percent of the revenue to Pennsylvania schools. DiGirolamo argued a severance tax is the cost of doing business, and that the natural gas industry wouldn’t flee if one was imposed. “The gas underneath Pennsylvania is pure, it’s abundant and they’re going to be here for a long, long time,” he said in an interview.
DiGirolamo and his wife, Donna, have four children.
