Capitol crunch time

An important update from the West Virginia Surface Owners Rights Organization:

Please contact your representative(s) in the House of Delegates and urge passage of HB 2878 regulating Marcellus Shale and other gas well drilling. Although the bill addresses some of our concerns but not others, it must pass the House by Wednesday to remain active this session.

The goal is to keep the discussion about problems related to Marcellus Shale and other gas well drilling alive, and to work to improve the bill over the next two weeks. Currently, the House bill is stronger, and its passage will put us in better position when the House and Senate reconcile the final product.

Please call or e-mail delegates and urge them to support the bill. (If you can do it, calling is more effective than emailing.)

Your support is crucial to making regulation of Marcellus Shale and other gas well drilling a reality.

Please contact your delegates now.

Thank you!
