The Passage of House Bill 1950…

I thought I’d highlight a few of the items that I find horrifying that passed with house bill 1950 during yesterdays vote. Municipalities will no longer be safe from drilling and the acceptable distances of drilling pads and compressor stations from homes or public spaces, such as schools, have been set or reduced. For example, a well pad can be placed as close as 300 feet away from your home.

Thanks to everyone who made an effort to halt this sort of legislative coddling of the natural gas industry.
