At least three Bills being considered by the Texas House of Representatives will take away control from cities, shorten drilling/production setbacks and cause cities to compensate landowners who are unable to access their minerals because of unreasonable regulations.   HB 4441 would give the Texas Railroad Commission exclusive authority over pipelines and drilling/production equipment overpowering city ordinances and zoning.  HB 4654 would empower the Railroad Commission to regulate city oil and gas ordinances.  As reported earlier and today in the Flower Mound Leader, HB 2110 would make municipal oil and gas ordinances liable to lawsuits.  Citizens are asked to write the House Energy Resources Committee and their representatives.
