Calls needed on Marcellus bill

The House has decided to forgo further consideration of HB 2878, its bill regulating natural gas drilling in West Virginia, and is planning to take up SB 424, which was passed by the Senate on Wednesday.

Please call or e-mail your representatives in the House of Delegates ASAP. This is our last chance to pass a bill this session to regulate Marcellus Shale and other gas well drilling.
You can call your delegate toll free at at 1-877-565-3447.

It is imperative that your delegates hear from YOU. There is a coordinated effort by some in the industry to stop the bill, saying, “Vote No,” and “the future of the industry and West Virginia’s economy are at stake.” We've heard that legislators are receiving hundreds of these messages – but very few from concerned citizens in support of a strong bill regulating Marcellus Shale and other gas well drilling.

Please contact your delegates and ask them to pass a strong bill that will protect West Virginia’s:
Surface Owners
Water Resources
Environment and Natural Resources
Mineral Owners
Work Force

Contact your delegate now. Thank you!
