First Major Victory!

Today in the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee, we passed HB 219, my surface owner notice bill.

This is the bill that gives surface owners notice before the minerals beneath them are leased by an oil company, notice of who owns the minerals, and an opportunity to use a thirty day period to buy the minerals from the mineral owner.

From here, the bill moves to the House Judiciary Committee.
