[Motion to Agree Sen. Sub] HB 205: Mining and drilling; regulate exploration and extraction of gas and oil; provisions

Voted on Tuesday March 28, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

I voted YEA on the Motion to Agree to the Senate Substitute of HB 205 which regulates the exploration and extraction of gas and oil in the state by amending the 'Oil and Gas and Deep Drilling Act of 1975.' Any oil and gas exploration to identify new sources of energy should not occur at the expense of the state's important natural resources such as residential, municipal and industrial supplies of fresh water.
